    then perhaps a subthread about the initial provenance of this particular detail isn't going to be particularly interesting to you.

    I'm not going to call you "silly" for not caring who brought it up first, but there are people who have decided that that matter is important, and sadly, many of them are working off of bad information, so I decided to correct a rather widespread misunderstanding.

    I hope that's ok with you that I did that.  We do want to be working off of solid facts; this is, after all, supposed to be the reality-based community.

    Anyway, for the third time now, I haven't disputed a single word from either of those articles.  Neither of them say that the chained CPI offer originated with Obama, just that he included it in a counter-offer halfway through the process.

    Art is the handmaid of human good.
