    it looks like Obama is spineless, once again.  That is the take away from this.

    Backdown Obama.  That is the headlines

    Bad is never good until worse happens

    •  No, the headlines are Boehner said "NO!" (6+ / 0-)

      Obama got what he wanted.

      NFL night is better than debate night (veiwership wise).

      I'm not happy with this President but I have to say Obama comes out looking better in this one.

      We who criticize this administration are allowed to give praise every now and then dark daze, or at least not fall into the trap of repeating republican talking points (i.e. dems are "spineless").

      Every election either the democrats lose or the republicans lose. But in every election there is always the same winner. And he drives a Mercedes.

      It looks like Obama said 'I want to address Congress the day they come back' and Boehner, typical inattentive teenager, didn't listen and said 'meh'

      Obama, assuming he's dealing with adults and not uncouth and disrespectful 10 yr olds, says 'OK then'.

      Then Boehner realizes what he just agreed to, and goes 'OMG! That's the same time as DWTS! That's totally not going to happen! My BFFs will KILL me!'

      And Obama, being the adult, sighs and goes 'so we'll do it Thursday then'

      I suspect what he said in private would be not fit for sailors to hear.
