IT'S ALL ABOUT JOHN BOEHNER NOW:Two quick thoughts and then to bed:
(1) When was the last time, if ever, that a president was re-elected to a second term but did worse in that race than in the first? Ever?
(2) The big enchilada now is making sure that the GOP shares credit for the Peace Dividend-driven recovery. To that end, John Boehner needs to say to the UR: "Okay, we're still here and you're still there, let's pass that Grand Compromise now." That way the Republicans get credit for the coming plunge in deficits.
Actually, a third thought: If Mitt does lose FL, NV and CO will the nativist wing of the party please go away?
