I know that's not a good visual for Monday morning but after seeing him trying to explain away the massive caves of the administration this morning - that is really and truly how I feel.  

You remember David....the guy who said the American People wouldn't care about the unemployment numbers when it came to elections.

This morning's comments are not really any better:

He conceded that the process had "been messy," and said he believes the American people "obviously would like a little bit more compromise and a little less shouting."

No David, the American people would like a president who would at least pretend to be negotiating on their behalf and not cave at the first sign of push back from the lunatics.

On taxes, Plouffe noted that a newly constituted bipartisan congressional panel will "look at tax reform, entitlement reform," as part of a continuing effort to reduce the deficit.

Yes, Catfood Commission II will save all our problems and we can all go back to finding good deals on tents that will be big enough to include Grandma as the nursing home she was in closed because of all this very serious "deficit reduction".  

Is this all in preparation for a future unemployment rate of 40% since your administration has done nothing to raise the issue of the increasing outflow of jobs from this country??  Seemed like that was part of his campaign way back when, ya know - he wanted to get elected.  David, you do realize that if he pulls that out again during his campaign that it won't work since we saw how much time he paid to that issue this time?

And finally, the thing that really aggravated my gag reflex:

And he said the White House was not worried by lawmakers' criticisms of the pact.

Or apparently, the rest of his party.  Go away David - just please go away.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
