  1. Say it with me. There is no Grand Bargain. Much as I hate the phrase, we really should “kick that can down the road.” Any plan for Comprehensive Anything Reform — budget, immigration, whatever — should really wait out the next 4 years, rather than getting a bad deal.

    Hmmm, is this the same ‘had line Conservative (R)’ who thinks Rand Paul’s ideas are, and I quote, “kooky”? Graham, like McConnell, has become a joke! That’s probably why they used him as an example.


  3. Well, think about the President’s experience in negotiating. He never participated in the business world were negotiations are about being mutually benefical. Obama’s only experience is negotiating is about getting something from the “other” where the benefits are all one sided.
