    and it's leader are lost...and desperate.

    Why??  Who the heck knows...

    But read this again...

    WASHINGTON — The White House says President Barack Obama would veto House Speaker John Boehner's `Plan B' proposal for extending tax cuts for people making up to $1 million.

    White House communications director Dan Pfeiffer says it is unlikely that such a bill would pass the Senate. In a statement, he says the deficit reduction that would result from the `Plan B' approach is minimal and offers no spending cuts.

    Has the President been running around with a pen saying he would sign the exact same thing at $250 right now?  Without spending cuts?

    When the other side gets you to start contradicting your baseline positions, you are losing.

    Only incompetence and total cowardice/fear would get this current WH to the position of losing with nothing but wind their backs.

    Or...incredible competence...in pushing Pete Peterson's plan and getting Democrats to buy it.  Stephanie Cutter did say on MSNBC that Pete Peterson was the person to look to when consider deficit cutting options.
