    that the President made this offer knowing it was a dead letter, and knowing that before the Democrats gave it a thumbs-down, that Boehner would reject it.  I think - we're going over the cliff, and I think Boehner's current stance blaming the president for it is going to backfire.

      I'm never really sure how much they put things out to see what would happen, or just to say "Look, I'm pissing off my own people for this, and you don't want to meet me halfway. Really?"(all the same, I've written the WH.)
