      better to tank the recovery, undermine us for 2012, and once again prove to the republicans that they can get their way by playing hardball. and on to the next time.

          and we'll never get a clean budget bill. or whatever the gop decides to use next. pay the ransom and they'll be nicer to us next time. or something.

          or maybe you don't play games at all and say the debt ceiling has always had bipartisan support and put the onus squarely where it belongs. and dare the gop to buck the chamber of commerce.
