  •  This time, I don't think the Dems will play along. (0+ / 0-)

    They've seen this story before, and I don't think they will buy it this time.  They know they can't trust the GOP now, and if they make any concession on any item in the present fiscal debate, what's to stop the GOP from demanding more concessions when the next debt ceiling debate comes up?

    I don't think they will fall for it this time.  January is coming, more Dems will be in the House and Senate, and it will be easier for the Dems to dictate terms, and many of them know it.  They have far less to lose than before.  They need only to make Obama realize that he has nothing to lose by riding down that cliff and resuming the fight in January, where he'd be in a better position (if only he would realize it).

    How does one become so manipulated by the unknown that he or she abandons a position of strength for a position of weakness?
