    I don't want to see losing...

    Commentator after commentator AND the President have said the President is offering Boehner and amazingly conservative deal, and has gone way past half to meet the demands of a party that lost in a landslide.

    And we are supposed to believe the winning is completely predicated on whether the President's likeability rating remains high.

    What none of these diaries, on either side discuss is what the preferred deal would be, and compare it to the actual offer or final deal.  Wouldn't that be the appropriate evaluation model?

      we never really know what all of the offers are or would be before some new development occurs that takes us in a different direction.

      But I do think the dynamics of the current GOP structure is clear and it's equally clear to me that in order to effectively govern, that we must neutralize the current GOP strategy of 'primarying' its own members with more extremists by wholly rejecting their side completely.
