    ..2 million jobs in that deal, & tainted the hell out of the Democratic (party)  brand in the process.

    I realize there is a first time for everything, but when Boner said he got 98% of what he wanted, he was being honest.

    When Fascism comes to America it will be wrapped in excess body fat and carrying a misspelled sign.

    •  Boner got the promise of cuts starting in 2013, (3+ / 0-)

      of which a significant amount of which will more than likely come out of programs he wants to protect.  You still haven't figured out that deal means nothing.  It was simply an escape hatch to allow everyone to save face.

      Their still negotiating the same deal.

        is the public's perception of that deal.

        And I have a feeling wyvern might not be the only one who hasn't "figured out that deal means nothing."

        The sausage-making of that debt deal was more damaging than it needed to be.

        Obama's got that much harder a task before him because of it.

        Somebody has to do something, and it's just incredibly pathetic that it has to be us.

        •  The "perception" of the deal is driven by the (0+ / 0-)

          obstructionism of Republicans, and the incessant carping on the left.  In both cases, the goal is to weaken this President, but for different reasons.  I know why the Republicans are doing it, but can you explain to me how this benefits the Left?
