I'm amazed to hear David Brooks say something decent about Ryan's budget. However, not sure where he gets the idea that Obama's "low-road" attacks on Ryan's budget are counter to Obama's character.

I think Obama made it real clear, right after his inauguration that since he had won the election, and the Congress had Dem majority, he didn't care much whether the R's chose to cooperate or not. IMO, all the campaign rhetoric about bipartisanship went down the bowl when he made that strong statement at the outset.
