    We're bailing as fast as we can but the water just keeps rising. What is he waiting for?

      ...he's waiting for the clear indication that a bill will not reach him to avert default.

      because i clearly have no other choice, i choose to believe that he is smarter than he appears and has them right where he wants them.

      i'm not holding my breathe and i will not be at all surprised if we find our party leader signing a republican cuts only bill. if that happens, it will only embolden them to continue practicing extortion to continue dismantling the public sector and rend the social fabric absolutely useless.

      but if the talks break down and no bill is forthcoming before the default deadline, ironically, i'll be much more optimistic that this is going according to Obama's cleverly conceived of plan to save the day and us from the ravages of the Kochian anarcho capitalist gangs.
