After the debt deal, will voters throw the bums out again next year?
While Washington politicians are patting one another's backs for getting a debt deal, voters are angry enough to shove those backs right out the door. On the right, there is disappointment that the compromise barely erases a drop of the nation's red ink; on the left, a mass feeling of dismay that the agreement was struck largely on Republican terms. In the sensible center, voters are disgusted by the capital's dysfunction, partisanship and failure to focus on job creation.
Does that mean Obama will be a one-term President?
