  •  I appreciate your approach to this. (9+ / 0-)

    Many people here seem so terribly confident of their read on this situation and its consequences. Its almost impossible to address the questions...like:

    1. Did Obama actually put CPI on the table? Or was it simply discussed?

    2. What would public perceptions about the failure of negotiations have been if PBO refused to compromise after Boehner conceded on taxes and the extension of the debt ceiling?

    3. If Obama actually put CPI on the table, what conditions were included to protect those most vulnerable? And were those protections the reason Boehner walked out on the negotiations immediately afterwards?

    Lots of questions that make the rush to judgement about Obama look to be more grounded in what people assume about him than what we actually know happened.

    There is one place where I disagree with your perceptions. I personally don't think that Obama bluffs.
