"President Obama has billed his 'grand bargain' as the adult compromise because it has something for everyone to hate. The package would raise the $14 trillion debt ceiling (which the public hates), raise taxes by $1 trillion (which Republicans hate) and cut spending by $3 trillion (which Democrats hate) over 10 years. As the president argued in Monday's news conference, it's time for Washington to 'eat our peas.' ... Me? I can't get past the suspicion that the 'grand bargain' is one big gimmick." (07/14/11)
