    Obama is finally getting somewhere because he is doing what the progressives have been pressuring him to do all along. We've always said not to deal with the Republicans when they pull this kind of crap.
    Over and over he's caved and now he's finally, so far at least, following a progressive game plan and Viola! - results.
    No thanks to those who "trusted" him to do the sensible thing.
    It's precisely those that have "trusted" Obama who are responsible for all the caves. And, in large part, those caves were responsible for the dismal showing in 2010.
    We need to keep the pressure up on Obama to stand strong and reject this deal.
    This is not complete surrender.
    This is not game over.
    This is a tactical retreat and they will attack again.
