Conspiculously absent in Hewitt's kudos is for Vice President Joe Biden. Mitch "Turtleman" didn't do this on his own for sure. Biden helped in large part to broker the agreement, even the Turtle said so. So, Hewitt, I know you hate Joe, but he did a good thing. And by the way, enough with the sports analogies. The word "win" is overused in this context - as in a win for the president, a win for a political party. If there are winners, it's the country. After all, this should never be about political parties, politicians, or Grover "never been elected to anything" Norquist. Wow, old Grover will have his hands full trying to primary all of those repubs who voted for this thing. Yes, we need to cut down on defense. Enough, already.
