"straight out of the House of Commons"

That was refreshing - truly, it was.

Although I think the House GOP ended up ceding yet more air time to the Executive.  And it appeared as if Obama was capable of "taking them all on at once" in a way.

But perhaps that was part of the plan...when a President is this overexposed...notwithstanding what some observers say.

The frank, respectful discussion of Rep. Paul Ryan's "Roadmap" was also intriguing - and rare.
