    right now.  

    If he compromises and solves this non-crisis that he and his pals created, he will not be able to convince the house teabagger members to go along with it.  He will lose his gavel to Canter.

    If he doesn't, and the Bush tax breaks expire, he loses corporate backing, without which he cannot survive politically.

    Kicking the can down the road seems like the best solution for him.
