HuffPost editor Howard Fineman appeared on MSNBC's "Countdown" Wednesday night to discuss the fallout from the Obama deficit commission's proposals released earlier Wednesday.

"I think it was probably shock therapy on the part of the two co-chairs, but it was a complete surprise to the other members of the commission and to the White House," Fineman told host Keith Olbermann. "Ironically enough, they may end up hoping that the commission doesn't end up agreeing on anything."
