He just compromised the Republican position by not shutting down the government and forcing the progressives hand. There is a 3 to 1 majority and the republicans could have forced Obama have to justify his spending and could not have feigned his move to the center. Big fail on the republican part.Answer Question

No, I don't think so. At least he was willing to sit and listen to the dems concerns. That is so much more than happened when Pelosi was in charge. It can't be our way or their way (or vise vera). It has to be what is best for the entire country. The dems way was sending us to the poor house. The very conservatives will have us spend nothing. There is a middle ground. I think Boehner is trying to find that middle ground.

And while our military was bracing for a government shut down yesterday, the former Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi was en route to Boston to headline for SOROS' "Change The World" event!! She has proven ONCE AGAIN that neither she, nor the PROGRESSIVE DEMOCRATS actually care about the citizens on "Main Street!"

Can't bump this question........:(
I did it for you, jjb.
It might need to get better than it has been so far, but he does have a mess and an unwilling Senate to have to work in tandum with. PBO said he inherited a 'mess' while Boehner actually did. Give him some time then revisit this subject. He does need to hear from us as to what we want and need. That is still so important.
