Big win! The adult in the room!

Everyone loves austerity!
The hard-won, last-minute agreement to raise the debt ceiling and cut the deficit gets low ratings from Americans, who by more than 2-1 predict it will make the nation's fragile economy worse rather than better.
I guess I still don't understand this doing-enough-to-piss-off-your-base-and-never-enough-to-satisfy-the-crazy-opposition-to-capture-the-middle strategy.

Maybe someone can explain it to me.
