I'm really unhappy about this, but am waiting to hear more about what it is. I agree with the above, I'm not sure what better deal could be reached when we only have the House. I think the whole commission idea is bad, raising the debt ceiling is bad, and giving the Democrats who had zilch for plans an inch is bad.
That said, the GOP was going to get the blame no matter what happened here because they are ALWAYS behind on the message.
I blame the RINOs and rest of the weak-kneed GOPers that have kept acting like Democrats for far too long and got us in this mess to begin with. This has been ongoing for decades, sadly enough, and a big landslide election in November wasn't enough to knock some sense into them. Some are trying, however. We do need a big change for 2012 to win the Senate and White House. I'm hopeful but if they don't win the message battle and stick to their guns, it's going to be sad.
