There were many things to dislike about King Obama's speech this evening, but the idea to form a bipartisan commission to reduce the deficit is one of the most laughable. The democrats have been in control of everything recently, they've created a tremendously large deficit, and it's on them. Forming a bipartisan commission to reduce the deficit is just an excuse to get a few republicans on board to raise taxes to deal with the problem the D's created.
I don't recall the democrats asking for a commission to raise spending. They f'ed up the budget themselves. Sack up and fix it.
