    if you think Boehner is allowing a clean debt limit bill - this bill got passed bc the GOP was terrified of the tax hikes..... they will have nothing to fear this time.

      You think the big money guys want us to reneg on our debts?

      The Tea Party faction may not give a shit about anyone or anything, but I guarantee you the establishment GOP still left answer to those guys. And they will have none of this default nonsense again.

      This post is dedicated to myself, without whom, I'd be somebody else. Though I'd still be an asshole. My Music: []

        GOP types and while he watches Fox and spouts off about deficits and big government, all he really cares about is the business atmosphere.  Anything that makes profits lower is what he pays attention to.  By taking away the specter of what horrible things Obama will do to people in his tax bracket and the estate tax rates, he is feeling, I am sure pretty relieved.  Now all he will focus on is the economy improving.  He is my barometer of the true core of the GOP.

        they know Obama will roll over again.  Why on earth would it be different than last time?  It's the EXACT same scenario.
