    Seems pretty clear cut to me.

    Obama and Boehner made a deal, Obama gets word the senate dems in the gang of 6 had grabbed more than he did, so he backs out and asks Boehner for more. Boehner says no thx.

    Obama took a shot and he missed. And now its Boehners fault?




    Obama, GOP try to figure out way forward on debt

    snip-

    At his news conference on Capitol Hill, Boehner said he had an agreement with the White House for $800 billion in revenue, but Obama added $400 billion at the last week. "The White House moved the goal posts," he said.

    White House officials said the $400 billion was negotiable. They said those proposed tax change came from the bipartisan plan generated by the Senate's so-called "Gang of Six," meaning the ideas had garnered some Republican support.

    Boehner said at the press conference Republicans wanted to change the tax code by lowering the rates and broadening the base. Think about what that means.

    In case you haven't figured it out, it means lowering rates on the wealthiest Americans while piling more on the Middle Class. Obama wanted 40 billion a year more on the wealthiest to offset what was happening to the Middle Class.

    What I want to know is why the Republican base is so against their own self interests? Why are they begging for the own self destruction? The Republican leadership gives their base a pie in the face and their answer is to hand their leadership another pie. I've heard of "turn the other cheek", but this is ridiculous.

    as part of a counter offer? and so?

    they had a deal, obama muddied the waters, it is what it is. he probably felt like an ass becasue the senate dems got more on that end then he did, but be that as it may- we have been told the house is the issue, they need to deal, well, they did, and obama fucked it up. If you have a refutation to that article, showing that what they decried above is inaccurate (like say the notes Obama said he would release etc.), fine, please post it.

    That would be progress for Obama blaming someone actually in office today instead of Bush. The one positive I can see if Obama is re-elected is how funny it'll be for him to still be blaming Bush...

    and he owns it now. the media has a hard time printing that, the article didn't get to the nitty gritty till near the bottom, which speaks to EXACTLY why we don't have a house deal and why the sheeple will blame bush...oops, I mean Boehner.....

    They will blame Boenher and since the republican establishment has already started it will be easy for the MSM to pile on.
