    You asked why make the offer and damage the party brand.  Then my response should have read "You make the offer that you are pretty sure they are going to refuse to make the other party seem unreasonable"  

    The GOP can't claim that the deems won't offer some Big three cuts in an effort to bring down spending.  Of course they will make that claim but most people will see that as BS.  It works.  That's why the republican brand is being damaged more each go round.  We see this reflected in the new CCN poll today.

    Right man, right job and right time
