Not once did I say anything about Clinton era policies. All I've said so far is that I'm not confident that Boehner has the political capital to spend here. At least not enough to win this battle when Obama has nothing to lose. Boehner's the one who has to run in 2 years. Obama doesn't ever have to run for anything ever again.
So whatever you want to say about "ramming a progressive agenda" the question is who wins if we go over the cliff. If you think Boehner win, fine. I doubt it. I'm certain that you'll think he wins no matter what. But thanks for letting us know that Republicans winning a stupid power play means more to you anything else. It says a lot.
