Yet Boehner was holding a losing hand. Had he added a GOP wish-list bill to the debt ceiling, Harry Reid’s Senate would have rejected it. President Obama would have denounced it as putting at risk the full faith and credit of the United States.
Do we know that? Obama's lies are being recognized by even those who voted for him. Whether he praises or denounces anything is a mute point when his word is not sacred anymore. The same goes for Harry Reid. It's obvious that Obama is trying to "break the bank", but giving the blame to republicans. When it gets even worse, Obama can say it was a bipartisan effort, and somehow will blame republicans again. Of course, the Tea Party is getting frustrated because so few are doing so much and receiving so little cooperation. Instead, they get ridiculed.
