    trying to put the 14th amendment to work for him over the debt limit. He should at least try to get the repugs to pay a price for putting out of work families benefits at risk. He could make a speech about the reckless needless cruelty of such a thing and make stick if he wanted to. Is he protecting the unemployed or is he using them as a shield to protect himself from rank and file Dems who will be angered by the rotten deal he seems determined to make.

    I wish I could appreciate the joke of Obama saving the repugs from themselves while the house t-pugs might end up saving us Dems from Obama.

      The republicans do not seem to have paid much price for their cruelty to the poor so far. They want tax cuts for the rich, and without that, they would like to take the country down the sewer with austerity measures which they will insist is "medicine" (actually, poison)  to deal with the unemployed who they will claim are without jobs thanks to the pres.

      We need more stimulus.  If this deal gets us a decent stimulus, it may be worth it...assuming the pres feels confident he can stare down the republicans over the debt ceiling.
