No, Palin is not wrong...she is correct.
What happened this week was a step in the right direction and the Tea Party helped us from getting a much worse bill.
It was a step, but NOT a victory.
To say we won because we put up a good fight, is like saying Bama won the Iron Bowl in 2010 because they dominated the first half. However, in the end, Bama LOST THE GAME AND WE LOST THIS BILL.
Yes, we put up a good fight and scared the bejeebers out of them. That is why they are trying hard to convince us that we won. They are hoping we’ll take our victory and be satisfied with it.
At the end of the day, the debt ceiling has been raised. Our taxes will go up in 2013 and we have vague promises of some futuristic, nebulous, spending cuts.
We lost this one.
