Well, if you read this blog, you know all about the deal President Obama cut regarding extending the tax cuts and unemployment benefits.
I'm kind of mixed in my reaction. It doesn't seem like too bad a deal, if you have to cut a deal. Both sides getting something, that's what compromise is all about. Politics is the art of the possible, right?
I'm not smart enough to game out what will happen two years down the road, so I'm not going to worry about it.
What I wish is that Obama would stand up and fight for something. Push back against Republicans, and make them pay a price. Until he does, I'm going to continue to feel very lackluster enthusiam.
Not a very interesting post, I know, but I was tired of looking at that gals black eye.
