    steps that make many Democrats queasy Independents or non-voters
    If a Republican mole wanted a way to get Democrats to throw the 2014 election, they'd do what the President wants to do.

    This is just insane! And "insane" is not hyperbole, it's technically precise.

    Seems he's got this idée fixe which has him walking around, eyes glazed, repeating over and over "Must.Make.Deal.Even.If.Stupid."

    And what's the "deal" do? Hurt the people; hurt the Economy (austerity ALWAYS fails); hurt the Democratic Party.

    Can we get an intervention?


    If Republicans said every 3rd person named "Smith" should hang, we'd bargain them to every 7th. Then we'll see apologia written praising this most pragmatic compromise. There's our losing formula.
