    Well, that was quick. For some time it has been obvious to anyone paying attention what the true GOP budget strategy was: demand that Obama make proposals for entitlement cuts, and then
    they’ll just pronounce themselves unsatisfied with whatever he comes up with, and are indeed very likely to campaign in 2014 attacking him for whatever cuts take place.
    But it turns out that they didn’t even wait for any actual budget deal.

      Don't expect a deal is what it comes down to- you can't deal with the nutjobs in the House. Boehner would never try and pass a bill that needs a majority of Dems to sign off on it.

      runs deeper than deep, I guess.  

      Probably their base is thrilled, that percentage of it that hasn't been institutionalized.  These people are off the wall.  

      I could seriously see John Boehner getting on a plane in the next 24 hours.  In a hastily written statement on the cold tarmac in Washington, he announces his retirement from the House and hopes

      "...whoever becomes the next Speaker is as insane to hold the position as he/she was to want it in the first place.  I'm just tired of the bullshit.  Adios."
