  •  Let's be honest, Boehner will get to 218 (0+ / 0-)

    Republicans can't be stupid enough to reject their winning hand. Right?

    •  And then he'll come to the mic (1+ / 0-)

      and say "I got 98% of what I wanted" even if it's not true, the media will say Boehner won and Obama caved.

      I'm pretty tired of being told what I care about.

    •  Not when he'll get more than enough Dem votes... (0+ / 0-)

      He'll have his far right vote against it so he can keep the idea going that the GOP House is craaaaaazzzzzyyyy!!  And you have to give in to them or they'll nuke the economy.  

      The NRA is the Gun Manufacturer Lobby. Nothing more. Their pontification about the second amendment is nothing more than their ad jingle. They're the domestic version of the Military Industrial Complex.

    •  I dunno (0+ / 0-)

      You think they think they can't wring a little more out?

      You think they are rational?

      These are open questions in my mind.

    •  Sure they can. They've done it before. (0+ / 0-)

      No tax increases, remember?

      Depends on how many actual Norquist true believers there are, how many Dems would come across to support Boehner, etc.

      if necessary for years; if necessary, alone
