    What's C&L? Anybody know? I just read this tweet, "Just got a preview of a post going up tomorrow at C&L that completely destroys Boehner’s little bit of credibility."

    Reid, however, released a statement that was less than optimistic about reaching an agreement on the timeframe of a deal.

    "I hope that Speaker Boehner and Leader McConnell will reconsider their intransigence," Reid said in his statement. "Their unwillingness to compromise is pushing us to the brink of a default on the full faith and credit of the United States. We have run out of time for politics. Now is the time for cooperation."

    Boehner told House Republicans earlier in the day that he wanted to present a plan by Sunday afternoon to avoid rattling the Asian markets.

    Good luck with that, Boehner. Not happening. And seriously, the fact that you FINALLY give a ****, you can FINALLY see the fire you've been playing with? This warms the cockles of my heart. I hope your portfolio takes a Taco Bell sized dump.

    Cut, Cap and Balance has already been voted down in the Senate. It would have meant an immediate credit downgrade.

    Sooner or later the GOP will have to compromise, just as the Dems have offered to do.

    The credit downgrade is inevitable. There is nothing we can do about it until we replace the Marxist in the White House and put more Conservatives into the House and the Senate.

    I hope we standfast and talk out the clock. Any deal with the one term president will be worse than no deal at all.

    I wish we had a Marxist in the white house. Instead we have a 1950s style Republican.

    That is just silly. But you go right on and believe what you will. It changes nothing.

    What has Obama done that is Marxist? Please give me specific examples of policies he's enacted.

    so...Obama is Eisenhower?
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.
