    Congress -- Boehner & McConnell -- always figured on welshing, I'm pretty sure.

    However, I do have a theory that by agreeing to the 'sequester' deal while dangling the possibility of a "Super" deal some time in the future (last week), Boehner and Obama designed a "no fault" program of Pentagon cuts that'll take place gradually, all the while knowing that the Super Committee was designed to fail, thereby triggering the cuts.

    Now the Rethugs want to go back on the political deal that neither side would have to bear the blame for military trimming.

    Typical.
