Obama Didn't Lose on Tax/Jobless Benefits Package

Joe Scarborough says, from a political point of view, the president's position on the Bush tax rates and the extension of jobless benefits was the winning one, and he doesn't understand why Obama caved in so easily.

Charles Krauthammer has a different take - that Obama got the GOP to agree to a new stimulus package.

Krauthammer's right - this time, the president is doing stimulus the way it should have been done last time... not a big pile of pork projects, but a series of tax cuts and other moves to put money into the pockets of people who will spend it for daily expenses.
