Well, I saw Tea Party favorite and a favorite of mine, Lt. Col. Allen West, on Fox this morning and he pretty much said what I said. Use Alinsky tactics. Take the victory, take the cuts, and come back tomorrow for more. And more. And more. He thought it was a good start-—but it does have to be a start, not an end.

I think that's exactly right. FWIW, I sometimes amuse myself by posting on a lefty board, and they are not only ticked about this deal, but convinced that Boehner rolled Obama. They are dreading what is going to happen when the debt ceiling issue comes up because they think the momentum is all against them.

And remember, we're fighting these battles while controlling only one house of Congress. We must win the 2012 election to have any hope of truly transformational change, because the left will not give up things like the ACA unless we do.

Constitutionally, every dollar spent must originate in the House, which WE allegedly control. We could have done a LOT better. The excuses are sickening.
