A Budget No One Likes is a Good Sign

John Avlon says that President Obama's budget released today "is not like all the others. It is not a positional bargaining document, designed simply to rally the base at the outset of negotiations. One way you can tell is that liberal activists and congressmen are already screaming 'sellout' at the White House for offering Social Security reform as part of a balanced plan to reduce the deficit and debt."

"The Republican response so far has been crickets, and that throat clearing you hear in the distance might just be a recalibration before another reflexive 'tax and spend liberal' attack on the president."

National Journal points out "the most important fiscal development of the week will hinge on the success of Obama's dinner with 12 Republican senators tonight."
