FoxNews has just learned what Freepers figured out 15 hours ago. If this gets passed, then the GOP will have lost it's platform for the 2012 Congressional elections. I can hear the DNC ads right now.

The Republican House voted for the biggest debt ceiling increase in US history . . .

Not really...did anyone REALLY think that we were going to get real spending reform with the Dems in control of the Senate and White House?

IMHO this doesn’t help the Dems that much, but nor does it hurt them.

What hurts them is Obama’s 40% approval rating, 1.4% GDP growth (likely to be revised down), and unemployment over 9%.

NO debt deal was going to improve that between now and fall 2012.

not all FReepers.
some have been busy for the past 2 days, saying what a great victory this bill is, and what a great job Boehner did, and that we should be happy with what we can get now, and wait for 2012 for more.
When the Washington Post writes it’s a great victory for the GOP, and a loss for Reid and Obama...
i’d go back and check the fine print.
