    In terms of politics, Obama and Boehner both come out looking pretty good, I'd say.
    In terms of policy...well, I'm a liberal Democrat and I'm pleased with this deal. I'd say that we got the better end of the agreement in terms of its actual content.

    Obama shouldn't be taking any credit at all when we all know, if it were up to him, there'd been no cuts at all. The deal's ok, but the cuts should have been deeper. Maybe in the 2012 budget.

    ........saying Obama somehow looks good coming out of this........is to ignore reality.

    So when the House extends funding for NPR and Planned Parenthood they should congratulate themselves?

    ‘Winning’!?!

    If Obama had an ounce of integrity, he'd give credit where it's due. It makes me laugh when he talks about fiscal responsibility. It's so obvious he doesn't believe it.

    Sounds a little hollow to me.

    Face it, Chap, the Dems have been crying all week about being forced to make cuts by the GOP.
