I may have underestimated the lengths half of the U.S. will go through to make things tough on Obama. Members of the house have been saying they'll do anything they can to vote against the President. I just never thought they'd have the anger and hatred would extend to self-destruction, but this is fanaticism. I think people will do whatever they can to make Obama's Presidency a rough one.
They passed the first 4pm deadline, which they wanted to meet before the Asian markets opened. It's still at a stalemate.
My question is this. Does having the speaker of the house refusing to answer the President's phone call in the best interest of the country? What if Obama called to say, "I'll take your deal". He had no idea what the phone calls was about. Gold is up $26 today because of the possibility of default. I thought this was a ploy, but this is really a suicide mission. The republicans want power so bad, they'll topple the country to make sure this administration has a disaster under his watch.
But we will remember - it was Boehner who did this.
