thenewmissus: I knew that it would bring spending and the budget into focus.
thenewmissus: I also knew that it would mak e people take a GOOD look at the Ryan plan.
sprawl15: The Romney campaign has basically said that because it's not 100% identical to the plan that Romney will theoretically put out in the future,
RyogaM: Jackson Herring: Here's the thing though - he can attack the sequestration all he wants because in Republican Voter Fantasy Land, those cuts are all Fartbama's doing.Which is great because it totally demolishes the GOP talking point that Obama is a spend-o-crat, trying to run us into debt. The sequestration is one of Obama's greatest accomplishments, it will force budget cuts on the military and elsewhere whcih both parties have been trying to avoid. The main problem is that it is risky to the economy, but he doesn't have to worry too much because he doesn't have to be reelected. It may be remembered as Obama's greatest political win yet.

AverageAmericanGuy: The practice of politics is an exercise in compromise. Not everyone walks away completely happy from every deal, and many times one side or the other may regret having caved on certain aspects of the final deal.The core of Romney's position is nuanced, subtle, and with a genuine understanding of how best to govern. As President, he'll have the ability to veto, which is something that Congressional legislators do not.
Kittypie070: Well, is it Kobayashi Maru time for Romnoid yet?
Tusz: I don't get how the Romney and Ryan think they'd be good at running the country when they hate everything they've done in government so far.
Lligeret: Look at how awful government is, JUST LOOK AT WHAT WE HAVE DONE!
xanadian: What this tells me about Ryan is he's willing to at least *sometimes* compromise on important issues.What this tells me about Romney is he's a goddamn retard.
