Meanwhile the comic…er…White House spokesperson Jay Carney says they “disavow” what the White House said.
What isn’t comedy is the fact that all along the Democrats have said they were sickened by the politics the Republicans are using in this budget battle while at the same time they don’t care how long the public suffers because….’we’re winning’
No politics there.
As Boehner complains about the Democrats attitude he apparently is open to dropping the ObamaCare fight. I know that will shock many of you right?
Boehner has essentially three options: (1) Throw in the towel by passing a clean CR/debt-ceiling hike with Democratic votes, which probably means he’s done as Speaker; (2) put together some sort of “grand bargain,” which has proved impossible even when Democrats had less leverage than they do now; or (3) extract some face-saving “pound of flesh” and call it a day.
The “pound of flesh’?
The medical device tax the Democrats didn’t like anyways.
The man is done as Speaker.
“There’s a definition of ‘winning’ being used in DC that recalls that of Charlie Sheen.”
