    "We do not need to play chicken with our economy by linking the raising of the debt ceiling to anything," said White House Press Secretary Jay Carney. "We should do that right away."

    Well, first of all, that pair of sentences sounds like something W would have said.  Let's assume there's some missing context..

    Telling Republicans what they shouldn't do MEANS NOTHING!!!

    If the Administration doesn't put out a declarative statement saying that the President will veto anything other than a clean debt ceiling bill, they're just flapping their gums in the hope stupid idiots will think they are saying something.

    "To pass these defendants a poisoned chalice is to put it to our own lips as well." Justice Robert Jackson, Chief Prosecutor, Nuremberg.
