The GOP: showed up but leave their principles and the interests of the American people in their cars. Point out to the Democrats that this could have all been done if they had been included at the beginning. Compromise with everything. America loses. The Democrats: Mr. Obama speaks smoothly, looks suave and manages to humm and ahh his way through without actually getting to any point. GOP skewers him and makes him look foolish. Pelosi frightens small children and racoons when the television turns on her while she speaks Democrats whine about not getting any Republican votes even though they didn't need them They agree to go with Mr. Obama's proposal, as was planned before they even sat down. USMB: The left will fawn and clean themselves up and claim that Mr. Obama made the GOP look like idiots. No proof will be offered. The middle: Will whine. The Right: Will continue to complain that the GOP are spineless lemur monkeys, unable to make a rational, solid argument in favor of the American People. Me: I will be sitting back and laughing at it all. Enjoy the theatrics.
