    I disagree with the premise of an editorial in the NYT, from Krugman, that asserts Obama surrendered. I think he got what he could get, keeping in mind he is dealing with dogma in the House. I have seen surrender editorials on both sides of the isle. It is what it is...

    Obama caved big time

    As usual, there were no concessions from the right

    The problem is... Democrats have a large disparity in their caucus. they range from far left socialists to blue dogs Conservatives... and they vote their conscience. The GOP on the other hand, has it's disparities too... but they tend to have their shit together a little better and vote pretty much in unison. I don't know how they do it so consistently, but I gotta give them credit where credit is due. Their party is the most organized.

    Of course, Boehner is now getting a taste of dissent in his own caucus, something that Dems have been dealing with forever.
