    "Bottom line: If President Obama decides to back down from his pledge it won't be because he had no other choice. It will be because he decided to. He is in complete control of how much leverage Republicans have on the debt limit."

    And that is something that we all need to keep in mind.  The Republicans have absolutely NO SAY as to what Obama does in the debt-ceiling business.  It is his choice -- and his alone -- if he decides to cave yet again.

    I will be up front  with the fact that I will be VERY unhappy if someone is stupid enough to trash the Republicans because of a rational, deliberate choice that Barak Obama chooses to make.  Such a person will be the perfect personification of the Democratic symbolic animal, in my opinion.
