  •  Simpson Bowles. So bipartisan (13+ / 0-)

    that they attack Democratic candidates for Congress who oppose it.

    What's disgusting about all of this is that they are winning the public debate on Simpson-Bowles by just using the reluctance of the left to oppose it and possibly undercut Obama.

    The only question that might be of interest tonight in the debate will be about the deficit.  Watch Obama's language for Simpson Bowles queues.  There's a good chance he'll just come out and endorse it in some form.  Maybe they both will.  Maybe they'll shake hands with each other on it.

    And there's nothing we can do about any of this until November.  Meanwhile, candidates like Kuster are going to be screwed over by the Democratic Party for not being pro-austerity.
