  •  Here is the thing - Obama can only argue WHO (7+ / 0-)

    should be driving on the cutting costs thing.  Everybody agrees on it (well between him, Boehner, McConnell).  Heck, when the fiscal cliff deal came, everybody agreed on raising middle class taxes by ending the payroll tax holiday.  

    Right now, the argument seems about whether the nice man who listens to cool music should be deciding how to cut the safety net and contract the economy, or whether it should be the orange faced crybaby.  A lot of the pain is going to persist one way or the other.

    Sometimes, only paritsan gridlock and bickering can save us.  When they agree, too often it has been really bad.
