Democrats will tell you we should vote for them because they're better than the alternative.
That being said, I'd really like to know what this is better than.
For most of this year, the White House has thought that the surest path to President Obama’s reelection was to strike a big deficit deal with Republicans, or at least be seen trying to strike a big deficit deal with Republicans.
So he's spent the last three years trying to strike a deal with people who have sworn to destroy him, and called him a Kenyan Muslim Marxist and other epitheta opprobia.
If it's true then I'd have to say I've never seen a guy in the White House as totally clueless as Barack Obama, and that includes George W. Bush.
