    his budget proposal that was unanimously rejected by Congress.  I don't think that the news media will paint that offer as a "compromise."  And it's not, really -- his budget sent to Congress was his "wish list," not a compromise with anybody.  

    If he wants to stand firm on his offer, he needs to say, that's it, my way or the highway, take it or leave it, no compromises.  That's a statement that will have credibility.  But he can't say that his offer was a "compromise offer" and have any credibility.

    In order to simply not consider this proposal, he has to essentially dismiss both Bowles and his own debt commission as not serious.  It will be interesting to see if he does that.

      proposal incorporates spending cuts and increased taxes on the wealthy, over 250K.
      You seem to be shrilling for Mr. Bowles.
      So what if the President's budget failed to pass, that's history, we just won an election and everything has changed.
      The President has the people behind him on this.

      President Obama has more credibility than he needs, thank you very much
