Change You Will Live With
Obama will not be bothered by the debt ceiling anymore until after his re-election. He scored a great victory and earned the ability to deal with re-election without being bothered by the debt ceiling. Congradulations to President Obama on his hard fought victory. He really kept his eye on the prize.
I have Lived Up to all My Promises
Beyond that Republicans got 98% of what they were asking for so congradulations to them. Democrats got nothing beyond an enhanced opportunity to keep Obama in office for 4 more years.
Some Year I (or the next guy up) will end the Wars and bring the Troops Home. That will save a lot of money.
We will have to wait a few days to see how the people react. In just a year and six months the Obama extension to the Bush Tax cuts runs out and there is always a small chance that the wealthy and big business might pick up some of the load the middle class and poor are dragging on their backs. A small chance is better than no chance, most of the time.
I am Completely Satisfied with the Great Job I am Doing.
As the newly negotiated deal dials back spending it will also dial back jobs. The economy is too weak to raise taxes on the rich, they are refered to as the job creators though they haven't created any jobs in about 10 years now. I guess we are afraid that if we tax them they might never again create a job. Fortunately conditions are good enough to cut back on spending and live with the job losses the middle class and poor will face. At least the rich won't be put out or made uncomfortable.
My Greatest Skill, Basketball
Is this what Democrats stand for? Is this all Obama stands for? The answer to one doesn't have to be the answer for both.

Its Time To Re-Build The Democratic Party
Professor Obama has taught the Tea Party a lesson. He has taught them that their tatics work and produce results. He has taught them that in the end he will choke and fold so now and for the forseeable future the Tea Party will repeat those actions that have payed dividends for them. Obama has failed to stand up for Democrats and potect their interests.
Obama entered the fray with no plan and backed down from every statement he made along the way. "I want shared responsibility with everyone having skin in the game." This plan opens medicare up to having the age for entry raised to 67, funny but until the voting is done nobody will tell you that.
Tougher Means testing can be applied to Medicade, Medicare and Social Security. These changes are part of step two and that starts in December of 2011. There are no tax increases for the wealthy in the plan. Now the white house and some Democrats and Obamas supporters will rewrite the story at every opportunity. Anything short of telling the truth but the truth will leak out when it is too late to matter.
Obama has several times now shown his skills at deal making and those skills are near invisible. For the rest of his time in office he will continue to operate at the levels he has demonstrated so far. Everyone wants to do business with Obama because he is a pushover, a mark.
If that's good enough for you, swell. It sickens me.
