  •  Even better and easier than the platinum coin (7+ / 0-)

    The GOP wants to see Obama lose?  Let the limit be reached.  Tell the defense contractors no payments. Immediately close all foreign bases.  Withdraw for real from Iraq and Afghanistan.  Give all the troops in GOP states indefinitely unpaid leave and bankrupt their local economies.  

    Then wait and see who says uncle.

    BTW don't redeploy the troups afterwards. By then, we will have realized that they are unnecessary.  Two birds with one stone.

    •  This is the quite one I don't hear much about. (3+ / 0-)

      not raising the limit essentially hands Obama a line item veto pen. I can't imagine the R's wanting him to have such. I believe they will blink.

      In the meantime I love the platinum coin talk. Its great theater and Obama should just remain silent on the coin thing. Keeps em guessing. Even more pressure for them to blink.

      .....it's on the table, under the watermelon she demurred. Thanks, I was planning on shaving anyway he replied.
