Daily Sanity Watch: Paul Ryan seems very reasonable on TV except for one thing–the President has put $1.5 billion in budget cuts on the table (and more, for a grand deal that includes entitlements). Ryan has put zero revenue increases on the table. Once again, that number is…0. So who’s unwilling to compromise?

Partisan hack watch: Charles Krauthammer thinks the President is stupid enough to do these negotiations in public. You’ll notice he doesn’t ask Eric Cantor to put his revenue increases on the table in public.
