  •  You Think a Deal Cut by Boehner is Final? HAHAHA. (1+ / 0-)

    And here's the real stinker, Boehner knows that.

    We keep thinking these guys are playing by "rules".  And every time they violate one of these "rules" we run to mamma media and tattle on them.  And they look mamma media in the eye and say "So?".

    But if the GOP and Obama cut a "deal" that deal is good.  That's the Rule.  (Of course any Tea Partier in the House can break that "rule" because of the "We're Just Fucking Crazy" exception to the rule and anyone in the Senate can break that "rule" because Boehner doesn't have the authority to negotiate on their behalf.  

    Guess what?  For the GOP, there are no rules, only unlimited objectives; an unshakeable belief in a mythical 2010 mandate of extremism, cuts and reshaping our society;  and a willingness to do anything and say anything to achieve those objectives and move on towards the fringe paradise beckoning on the horizon.  

    The "middle"  that gets agreed to by Boehner will be met with "revolt within his own caucus" (who could have known) and "repudiation" from the Senate wing of the Tea Party (no one could have predicted).

    Upon which yet a new right-leaning formula will be created that establishes yet another "middle" towards which we will obendiently march.  

    If we end up with cuts less than  $45 Billion (in the form of cuts to the little guy or additional tax breaks to the rich and mighty) I will be just stunned.  

    Sometimes when life hands you lemons, you should throw them back.
