    The dope we put into the Oval Office is now publicly playing a national game of "chicken":

    --
    Obama challenges GOP to compromise on debt - Yahoo! News

    EXCELLENT!

    I say let's play chicken with Dumbo.
    Wrong. What's irresponsible is trying to hold your breath till your face turns blue in order to get the surprisingly responsible people to cave in to your idiocy, Mr. President.

    It is.

    I saw a quote a while back that suggested that:

    IF you voted for President Obama the first time in order to prove that we aren't racists, then you should vote for his opponent the next time around in order to prove that we aren't complete idiots.

    I think its more posturing, they are all jockeying for position, I will say I find it politically ill-advised to paint himself into a corner.

    if the reps say ok to 'revenue' plus agreement, as they craft a short term fix, he'll still say no?

    If the Republicans agree, now, to ANY tax increase, the President will take credit for "forcing" their hands.

    The conservatives and responsible Republicans and any sane Democrat Congressman SHOULD now REFUSE to do anything but vote on MASSIVE spending cuts. They should call the President on his game of "chicken" by firmly declaring, "No to any new taxes of any kind in any form. And no to a debt ceiling increase."

    Make that officious idiot be the one to blink.

    "The dope we put into the Oval Office"

    You voted for Obama? I find that fascinating.

    No, "we" as in "we the People."

    Of course I didn't vote for the guy. He was easily identifiable as a virtual Marxist long before dejection day.

    It's about time Obama grew a pair. The last thing the GOP needs right now is to carry the "no compromise" label into the 2012 campaign season, especially if the US ends up defaulting on it's debt, causing a worse economy than we already have.
