  •  i think that the key question... (4+ / 0-)

    which i can only offer conjectures about, is, "how is it that mr. obama benefits from his abject refusal to take any of the available remedies to the problem of the republicans bullying him on the debt ceiling?"

    none of the answers that i come up with are flattering to mr. obama.

      It makes you wonder if there's something else going on behind the scenes of this play.

      I don't negotiate grand bargains with deficit terrorists!

      to Obama  and the praise is in the wings on the DC talking head circuit for Obama's 'Grand Bargain'.
      No he won't suffer because the corporate media will applaud like they did with Clinton on NAFTA, Welfare deform, Telecom Act, Glass-Steagal repeal and so much more. There will be attacks for not going far enuf by Fox and MSNBC's Team Blue talkers will do the duty for Team Blue.

      Then look at Clinton's personal value AFTER such a Presidency, mercy, the wedding for Chelsea (to a Hedge fund trader) cost more than the one put on by Madonna and it drew no critical eye from the DC circuit, maybe because some were guests.

      Yes Obama will be looking good financially and I imagine his Prez library will dwarf Clintons', the Grand Bargain (as described by Obama) , codifying Executive Branch overreach (in every area) and his 'NAFTA on steroids' (the TPP) are a few of the reasons his ticket is stamped. Hell he will even top Clinton in his attack on Social Security.
