  •  The GOP released this, why again? (8+ / 0-)

    In the Republicans' fevered brains, they must think this makes Obama looks bad?  

    I would think this package would poll well assuming people understood what was in it.

    •  They've switched places (3+ / 0-)

      with where Obama was in 2010-2011.  Now it's Republicans releasing this kind of stuff saying "See, the other side is being soooo unreasonable and uncompromising" with the hope that the public will punish Democrats for being a bunch of inflexible meanies.

      But only the pundits and beltway elites give a shit about that, the American public, not so much, something that Obama learned the hard way during the whole debt ceiling brouhaha.

      I think Obama ought to publish it and start campaigning on it, ( see my comment to DallasDoc.)
