    It would have been great politically, too, in my opinion. People would respect that he'll do what needs to be done.

    As it is, Tea-baggers are filling up their Xmas list, to make sure they get everything want next time the ceiling needs to be raised.

    If Obama had flipped the 14th Amendment bird, he would have instantly taken default off the table. Tea-baggers would have found they have no hostage after all.

    Impeachment? Bring it on! Let repubs get up and whine that Obama should have let the US go into default.
