Oh right Obama wanted a CLEAN CR but he buys off McConnell with a $ 3 Billion Kentucky Kickback and you have the balls to say McConnell did something right. Obama's budget has $ 1 Trillion, did you really thin he wanted that publicized? He wanted a 2 year CR with the freedom to spend like a drunken sailor.<quoted text>
The regressives didn't lose? Well, you're right in a way, I suppose. They didn't just lose, they crashed and burned. Those "RINOs" are the only thing keeping the GOP's leaky little boat above water, the only ones who showed any smidgeon of reason.
McConnell, for once, did what he was supposed to - looked after the citizens of the state that sent him to Congress.
As for the budget and the ACA....we'll see. I have little faith in the Congress to pass any sort of budget without the ridiculous, petty little power struggle they constantly display, but I'm cautiously optimistic. That cautious optimism extends to the ACA as well. It's not a perfect plan, but it's a damned sight better than what we had.
What our President got was the admiration of many for standing his ground and refusing to let punks with Earl Grey for brains hold our nation hostage. If anyone got screwed, it was the GOP by Teddy boy...and he didn't even buy them dinner.
The only reason this is as 90 day deal is because of the Tea Party. In 90 days we will see how effective Obama's budget proposal is. The only people giving Obama a standing ovation is his fawning LSM.
BTE, while his domestic policy is failing, his foreign policy is worse.
