66. No, you're

"Sorry, I think you are wrong. If that's the deal, I'd take it and move on."

...wishing. I mean, "if"?

The media reports are all one-sided. First Politico reported the offer as a "major concession." (http://www.democraticunderground.com/1014338270#post4)

Then reports indicated that the President rejected that offer. Now it's being pushed as the President's offer. What have Republicans given up?

In his latest proposal, Boehner offered a one-year debt-limit increase. And Republicans have opposed more infrastructure spending and additional unemployment benefits.

Answer: Not a damn thing.

If this rumor is true, Democrats are back to negotiating with themselves. This is absurd.

Up until a few days ago, everyone projected that Obama would gain leverage after going over the cliff. Now people are groveling at reports pushing the GOP proposal as the best offer.

I mean, WTF?
