    On Morning Joe, Chuck Todd made an interesting observation. "He said the President wasn't willing to cut the baby in half". A reference to the Bible story where two women fought over a baby, both claiming the baby as their's. When the order was given to cut the baby in half, the real mother was willing to give up her half to save the life of the baby.

    We saw this before when the president extended the Bush tax cuts in order to save unemployment for millions of Americans.

    Unemployment benefits extended in tax-cut deal - Christian Science Monitor.com

    So what did Obama manage to keep?

    Pell grants for students

    Medicare for the elderly

    Benefits for the disabled and children

    I can't believe America will side with Republicans against "students, the elderly, the disabled and children".

    Finally, he will be able to turn the focus back to "jobs" which Republicans say government can't create.

    My favorite line of the week goes to "Quantum Windbag":
    Education has nothing to do with the available jobs.

    Highly skilled workers are hard to find, so jobs go unfilled or to out of state. - Sun Sentinel

    Since Republicans already ran on "Jobs Jobs Jobs" and did nothing for "Jobs Jobs Jobs", I suspect that "theme" has been passed to the Democrats. Let's see how well they run with it.

    rdean gives a fuck. Morning Joe saves him having to think for himself, and gives him the added value of providing a topic to get outraged about.
