    If he kicks the can down the road until 2014, it's mid-term time, and in Boehner's World™, he feels he can set up Dem failure in order for the GOP to retain the House, and gum up the works until the 2016 presidential cycle.

      One of the main reasons we are in the crapper. And it's bipartisan.

      right now O has leverage and by waiting, boner knows O will have less leverage later.

      you would think the dumb fuck would know by now that O is a Jedi.
