Reporter's Note: The president’s latest budget has set the sharks to circling on both sides of the aisle in D.C. Here’s the thing though: That’s the nature of sharks.

Dear Mr. President,

Congratulations! You’ve once again pulled off the trick of producing a budget that has made everyone angry at once. Ha! Just kidding. Truth be told, I’m guessing a lot of Americans are far too busy managing their own budgets to worry too much about something as big as the federal government’s bank balance.

But the hard core partisans? Well, they are a different crowd. Some think you are abandoning much needed progress; some think you are surrendering to a disastrous deficit. Yadda yadda yadda.
