    At this point Boehner wants anything that can manipulate enough people into believing (1) he's worth being Speaker of the House and (2) Republicans deserve a House majority.
    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    They already have a speaker, his name is Cantor, and try to catch C. Bernstein's dismantling of Cantor on L. O'Donnell.
    I especially enjoyed the McCarthyite comparisons, very appropo.

    Imagine them voting on anything important economically.
    Birther, Climate, Evolution--now it's Debt-Doubters.
    I can't repeat enough the Koch letter to Congress today lacing the Repubs.

    Boehner is a SINO, Speaker In Name Only.

    I think Boehner wants to pass the clean CR, but he is speaking for his people. The clip that Jon Stewart showed last night (the most authoritative news show on TV) did sound that way to me. At about 3:10 in this interview.

    Actually, the Senate Repubs are trying to ride to the rescue, after being pummelled by conservative Business leaders.
    Problem is, they are developing the bill as if they are the najority.
    McConnell's spokesman, saying that Dems want to increase the debt by $1.1 trillion, is a COMPLETE LIAR.
    dems have already accepted the $986 Billion.

    Boehner will not reopen without concessions, his words
    However, he won't tell us what the 'concessions' are, his words.
