    No. And President Obama had to shove the “value” of compromise in our face:
    “President Obama surprised tourists with an appearance at the Lincoln Memorial Saturday afternoon. He was there to make the point that places such as the Lincoln Memorial are open today because The White House and House Republicans reached a budget agreement keeping the government open.

    “And that’s the kind of future cooperation I hope we have going forward ‘cause this is what America is all about – everybody from different places enjoying those things that bind us together,” he added.

    Boner should have either stuck to his guns, made a moral case for individualism and let the gov't shut down. Or he should have admitted defeat and explained why this battle can't be won right now. But he did neither. He accepted defeat and pretended it was a partial victory.

    Interestingly, the amount, $39 billion, in the final agreement is much closer to the Democrat $33 billion than the Republican $61 billion. That's after giving up almost all the riders.
