    Looks as though Norquist threw a life-line to the foundering House repubs seeing as their intransigence was untenable & would bring the Teapublicans down in '12. It goes w/o saying that most Teapublicans signed his pledge.

    GN doesn't want to kill his cash cow, Americans for Tax Reform, to do so would mean he would have to work for a living. He's smart enough to know if we default he will be blamed. As the leader of the radical Republicans whose ideological purity casued our economic crisis he, GN, speaks now to deflect blame when shit hits the fan.

    That guy is bad news. Never liked him for his over-the-top, anti-Washington rhetoric & I've been closely following Washington goings-on for 20 years.

    The budget is the dimwits fault. The house passed a bill and sent it to the senate but reid and the idiot dimwits failed it. Lets see them and obamaturd come up with their own plan instead of twiddleing their thumbs and blaming the republicans when they actually try to do something. The dimwits are do nothing twits, and any one who agrees with them also!!!!

    There was no permission required.

    Republicans had already committed themselves to ending the Bush Tax-Cuts....
    unless they had LIED.
