    that Boehner is trying to spin the media narrative in his favor as the person who's trying to get something done and Obama/White House are stalling or not being serious.  We all know CNN/FOX and even to some extent MSNBC will happily carry Boehner's water here, and I'm really curious to see how the polls go in the next week.  In any REALISTIC way Boehner should be seen as the one who's not being reasonable, but I've already heard news stories on CBS and ABC radio since yesterday trying to make Boehner look like how he's spinning this so I'm a little concerned.

    I think with Boehner's latest poutrage we can see that we are definately going off the CURB.

      was entirely in the Administration's favor ... they were poking GOPers about being blamed for the impasse and blowing off public polling on what Americans wanted. They were also saying bluntly that the vote on Plan B was a thinly-veiled attempt to deflect the blame on going over the curb to Obama.

      It was all good for Team D.
