Good. When your offer is worse than doing nothing, why would you 'get' anything for that?

Senator Congressman? You can have my answer now, if you like. My final offer is this: nothing. Not even the fee for the gaming license tanning booth, which I would appreciate if you would put up personally.

Elections have consequences.  You did what you wanted for four years, and the voters told you to eat a dick.  Do what's required, or resign, John.

Please.  The tears of impotent rage are causing salt buildup on my motherboard.  You had your chance.  You decided to bet the entire farm that Americans would actually buy a candidate who ran on "Vote for me and I'll tell you what I'll do once you've elected me".  Your hubris was so great that you ignored the fact that if you lost, you were also going to lose this battle no matter what you did.  Your side is going to lose this fight.  Deal with it, move on, and work on not letting the Democrats ban every gun in the country.  I'm sure that's a battle more suited for the current group of whackjob, up against the wall to the right, corporatist aristocrat fellators.

Besides, look at the bright side -- every month for the next four years, if an economic indicator moves anywhere but up, you guys can call an emergency press conference where you stand there, spittle-flecked and histrionic, and announce that the world is on the brink of total collapse, and it's all the fault of everyone who voted for Obama.  That is sure to work.  Keep on demonizing the President, all Democrats in Congress, and every Democratic voter.  I'm positive it'll make them vote for you next time.

This - if only any of that were true, as it is, America has spoken - they want strong Tea Party types to take us back to those simpler times - like the 96 hour work week and jesus and apple pie. I will humbly accept your apology as soon as I finish this delicious conservative home-brewed IPA - made with red white and blue hops and secondaried in the devil's own asshole.

Frankly, Boehner isn't even worth negotiating with, there's no evidence he can deliver on his promises. Go direct to Americans, make the Republican obstructionists fear for their jobs. It's the only way anything will get through.

That annoyed me as well, but at least remember this: A TPM writer will come right out of the gate and admit conjecture. Glenn Beck and Fox will just take the ball and run with it with no such disclaimer.

 I'm not a fan of libtard blogs, despite being among the biggest libtards here. But I have noticed they tend to at least try to back sh*t up with real links (not links to other blogs) and with video.

 Can't really say that about The Blaze, Stinker, WorldNut, FoxNation and all the other fear-mongering bullsh*t out there.

Because doing nothing will also yeild $800,000,000,000. Boner's just saying "I will lower the sun for you and raise it again in the morning." biatch, that's already gonna happen.

When you bring a weak offer like that to a negotiation with a world leader, expect to be torn apart and left for the sea birds.

Until January 15th, when the Democrats introduce a tax cut for everyone who makes under $250k. Are the Republicans really going to torpedo a straight up tax cut for 90+% of Americans?

Republicans think they have leverage over the debt ceiling, but either way, as someone who doesn't make over $250k a year, I'm not so worried about my taxes going up. Plus I work for the government, and they do all my income withholdings, so I'm pretty sure they'll do it right.

I just happened to watch MSNBC, and they're basically sitting back and watching the GOP implosion, wondering out loud what the hell is wrong with them.

Has anybody been watching Fox News? I'm wondering how they're spinning Boehner's complete lack of control over his own caucus. I'm sure it's Obama's fault some how...?

Obama used abortion-wanting sluts to distract Boehner hard enough so that he could steal from the Speaker's alcohol cabinet.

Rumor has it that Obama personally stole the whiskey sour mix from Boehner's alcohol cabinet, forcing Boehner to drink his whiskey straight all week long. Honestly, this is no different from how Boehner usually drinks his whiskey, but it's rattled his cage nonetheless.

If Congress actually gave a shiat about deficits they would do nothing and just let the cliff happen. But since they evidently don't, I'm fine with the 98% not getting screwed.

Nice try, but the vast majority of the American people realize that this mess is utterly due to TeaNut intransigence..... including the existence of the cliff in the first place.

I haven't heard anything about their ratings lately, but it was reeeeeealllly interesting to note that they used to be on all freaking day in a couple areas at my office, but now they've been replaced with CNN and MSNBC.

I think people are still watching Fox, but it's become a private vice, much like browsing porn and masturbating.

I can see this backfiring for Obama. Blaming the Republicans won't fix a thing. Boehner might be the genius for waiting until the debt ceiling debate to ask for tax cuts for those making more than $250,000 a year. A short term loss might be a big gain for the Republican Party.
