    The chattering classes in the Village are throwing "speculations" (their word, not mine) out there as to what "trophy" the President would have to "sacrifice" to Boehner to allow him to be able to "save face".  That's where all these bullshit rumors are coming from.

    The President's got all the cards, Boehner's got none and he knows it.

    The villagers are going to keep speculating to fill air time because there will be no deal to speak of unless Boehner actually starts specifying what he's willing to add in new revenues (in addition to the top 2% going back up Clinton era rates) and so far, Boehner's done nothing but whine.
