  •  I dislike Boehner's Policies..... (3+ / 0-)

    But I admire him as a politician.  He made Obama partially relent on tax hikes for the wealthy and got the White House on record saying they want to cut SS.  AND...He still said, I'll think about it.  Even if this is 10 dimentional chess or whatever, the tax hike on middle americans mixed with the WH saying they would support SS cuts is enough to lose us the midterms.  Bet you dollars to donuts that next Boehner will say (in private) he wants medicare cut, which will prompt the White House to hold a press confrence to announce they are cutting medicare, then Boehner will just simply let sequestration occur.
