      remember, he wanted the debt limit to be tied to entitlement reform.  now Obama smartly didn't give in to the hostage taking, but consistently Obama has said that he wants to discuss entitlement reform and get a bargain done.  Now, maybe there will be some tax loopholes that can be parsed enough to allow Obama to say there was some revenue, and allow Boehner to say to his side 'we got entitlement reform without raising any taxes'

      I like Michelle more than Barack.
