Democrats on the Supper-committee a Disaster ?

Breaking: House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) has selected Rep. Jim Clyburn (D-S.C.), Rep. Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.) and Rep. Xavier Becerra (D-Calif.) for the so-called “supercommittee” on Thursday.

The Senate Republican leader, Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, chose Senators Jon Kyl of Arizona, Rob Portman of Ohio and Patrick J. Toomey of Pennsylvania for the 12-member panel.

First of all, Mitch McConnell, senate minority leader, promised other day that he'll not choose any Republican senator to the Super-Committee who's willing to put revenue on the table. This came when President Barack Obama clearly said nothing is off the table, that includes revenues. So in the midst of this, what did Harry Reid do? He went ahead and chose his Democrats senators because he was, " serious about forging a bi-partisan deal." Yeah that's right, the Republicans are serious about making this a bi-partisan deal. What a classy guy?

Let's compare the three Republican and Democratic senators. On the Democratic side, we've got Patty Murray of Washington, Max Baucus of Montana and John Kerry of Massachusetts. At some point, any of these three could make a deal with the other side, and then game over, specially when you consider someone like Max Baucus. He has consistently agreed with the Republicans in the past, and he's proud of it. Case in the point, he voted in favor of Bush Tax-cuts. On the Republican side, Mitch McConnell has chosen Senators Jon Kyl of Arizona, Rob Portman of Ohio and Patrick J. Toomey of Pennsylvania for the Super-Committee. Jon Kyl will never agree with the Democrats unless it's something exactly what the Republicans want, and same with other the two Republicans.

If you think the first version of this deal was horrible, wait till the second part comes along. It's going be disaster of epic proportions for President Obama and the Democrats alike.
