Liberal nostalgia for Bush 41 is a reason it is so hard to do deal now

Thomas Friedman wants to bring back Poppy.  But Republicans still feel like Democrats did not live up to the cuts that were supposed to be a part of that deal or a previous deal with President Reagan.  Why keep falling for the same scam?  That is why Republicans are so insistent that the deal not include a tax increase, and that the cuts be something beyond the smoke and mirrors Harry Reid has trotted out.  His deal as written is a non starter.

To get a deal Obama is going to have to go back to something like the original deal he was working on with Boehner.  Otherwise the best he can hope for is a short term deal with more negotiations.
