    So we probably will.

    Look:

    The president and Congressional Dems can't negotiate when the other party won't tell them what their position is. It's just not possible.

    Boehner refuses to release a proposal. He refused to release a counter-proposal to Obama's proposal.

    The only scenario that will satisfy him is deep, punishing cuts that hurt American voters. He wants Obama to propose something like that and he wants Pelosi and Reid to compel their causes to vote for it.

    And then he wants to lead part of the GOP House in voting against it, so it will be the "Democratic Plan That Hurts the American People."

    We won't even get there in the short term, because he won't clue the Dems in to what he wants.
