    All five of them work for me. I suspect in the near future the same will be said about many House Republicans.
    This is being played brilliantly. Either Republicans go with in essence the Ryan plan of draconian cuts i.e. entitlements and lose the House or they start with the President’s plan and go from there.

    And it doesn’t help matters that they are leaderless.


    I’m wondering if it will dawn on Boehner in the near future that he needs the President.

      My only worry re Boehner’s seeming incompetence is that the President(with his compassionate nature) may compensate for him so that he doesn’t majorly fail in the eyes of the country. I see the President as someone who wouldn’t hit a man while he is down, and to date, with his tears and all, Boehner seems totally out of his depth. It takes more to govern than it does to yell’Hell no, you can’t’ or ‘no compromise’, and IMO Boehner’s very demeanour shouts incompetence in any area other than one liners. More often than not he looks like he wants to shrivel into himself, so I’m not sure what kind of effective leadership he will offer. Shucks, looking at him sometimes, I feel sorry for him so I hope he doesn’t touch the President’s compassionate button.

        I don’t think President Obama would compromise Americans to save Boehner’s face. I do think how ever he frames it he will find away to be as respectful as possible…..but I don’t see the President suffering, or allowing Americans to suffer at the hands of a fool. Much is expected of our elected officials……Boehner needs to be accountable for his performance as Speaker of the House, it is more than a title. I don’t feel sorry for him, I agree with you he is in way over his head…..and take delight in the competence and successes of Madame Speaker Pelosi, especially as Boehner attempts to “follow her act”.

        He’s not that compassionate. He’ll give Boehner a chance to save face but that’s about it.

    I choose education with infrastructure and fiscal responsibility tied for second.

    I think they are all important and would just appreciate a balanced approach, as they seem to be inter-connected.

    Innovation for me – this country is good at inventing stuff, and that’s where the new jobs are.
