This just highlights (and bolds, underlines) the reason Boehner hasn't been able to strike a deal with Obama. He's been too busy trying to please the tea-bags.

That's what happenes when you try to appeal to the far-right loons. You are prevented from acting rationally, to the detriment of all.

Obama has shown willingness to compromise, and I don't think this will go unnoticed when election time comes around. This game of political chicken orchestrated by the far-right will cost them as independant swing-voters wake up and review the facts.

By the time election time comes around If Obama doesn't agree to a real plan that will stop the downgrading of America's credit limit he will not be the Democratic candidate.

AW, poor, poor ineffectual Boehner. We tried to warn you that playing with the undereducated, racist angry white boys would get you into hot water, but you wouldn't listen!

The House passed a bill called Cut, Cap and Balance. According to Moody's and the S&P this is the only plan that will stop them from downgrading America's credit rating.

Let me just say that the Republicans are playing with a sleeping Tiger when they try to destroy the Obama Presidency at the expense of the safety and welfare of the nation. Japan woke that Tiger up in 1941 and they never repeated that mistake. I would say to the obstructionists and the seditionists, and the traitors on the right....our atom bomb will find you in 2012

What makes you think Obama wants to do anything but cater to his corporate masters in a game of good cops bad cops? Look at the man's history of "action" versus his rhetoric. It is an interesting game but Obama would love to come to an agreement with the Repugs and further turn the screw on the public. We are going to have to get a lot of people screaming bloody murder if we are to get Obama to make that good choice.

Chris Dodd and Barney Frank ("Fannie and Freddie are solvent!") Yes those two the S&P and the Dem party the reason for the world wide collapse and Obama blames Bush? For what? Bush tried to save the world from the Dems greed.

The GOP lied??? Say it isn't so!!! I'm just betting that ANY day now we should also start seeing all that Iraq oil Bu$h and the GOP promised would pay for the trillions they spent on Halliburton's nation-building project who btw took our money and moved to Dubai.

"Top Iraq contractor skirts US taxes offshore - Kellogg Brown & Root, the nation's top Iraq war contractor and until last year a subsidiary of Halliburton Corp., has avoided paying hundreds of millions of dollars in federal Medicare and Social Security taxes by hiring workers through shell companies based in this tropical tax haven."

Why wouldn't they? Boehner can't balance his own checkbook, why does he think he can do it for the US. For him it's an ego trip, he wants his name on the bill, forget the fact that he has no clue how to do it. Go with Reid's plan, so we don't have to go through this crap again in a few months.

Thanks to Chocolate John and his band of thieves we are now being taxed indirectly do to a reduction in our credit rating. It will probably shake out that the additional costs to the American people do to these folks stupidity will be greater than and of the loopholes Obama wanted eliminated from the tax code. I wonder what spin Boehner, Eric and Paul"Eddie Munster" ryan are going to put on this one? If these fools keep control of the House in 2012 we all might as well pack-up and leave the country.

Obama has a deal with Boehner for $1 Trillion in cuts and it doesn't matter what the Tea Party Caucus (huh?) wants because if it's agreeable to the dems in the house, it passes. Boehner said in his speech on Monday night one trillion is the number. The GOP is not beholden to this maniacal minority fringe.
