I had the same take-away as Chait. It was clear that The IDIOT has a thin grasp on the differences between the parties. It was also VERY clear that he has no idea of the pertinents regarding the Core Issues he campaigned on. Thus, Republicans have been able to take advantage of his stupidity and willingness to sign anything. He simply wants to sign something. He simply wants a perceived win. It’s simply all about the Optics.
