    So he's gonna piss off the "independents?" I just don't think it matters much. Way better than hearing some Conservadem droning on about the deficit.  Keep punching Harry.

    •  Nor for Reid, per se, but for Dems (0+ / 0-)

      and for the media narrative surrounding this mess.  The media will point back at whomever points a finger.  Boehner consistently blamed Obama, vociferously, for the failure to reach a deal.  How did this work out for Boehner?  It made him appear partisan and obstinate.  It's harmed the entire GOP.  Comparitavely, Obama took the high road -- and his favorables have risen.

      Kicking someone when they're already down generally does not play well.

      Things work out best for those who make the best of the way things work out.
