    SouthernLiberalinMD, grrr

    When you go in giving neocons half of what they want to start and then offer to negotiate they've had no reason to do much beyond wait for Obama to give up more. There was no case for strong liberalism because he negotiated on their terms not ours. He was not fully presenting our ideas and positions.

    Even now I hope there are parts of this bill (raising taxes on wealth) which are non-negotiable on pragmatism and principle. Make the GOP explain in detail why they they don't support an alternative approach when theirs failed over the last decade.
