    which puts into perspective that this is really just the first of a series of battles - and that to my mind, we came out more or less OK.  The really big battle on the horizon will be over raising the debt level.  I hope Obama sticks to his no negotiation strategy, but I still suspect it will be a huge fight. The GOP will have a few months to spin debt hysteria and will not be able to resist brinksmanship.  Obama will come under some pressure especially since the media will focus on the debt and "entitlement reform" narrative... It does seem like the GOP will be under even more serious pressure.  The 30% of the GOP that is bought and paid for by the banking industry and the plutocrats will face tremendous pressure not to default. The 70% nutcase faction will act as irresponsibly as ever.  

    If this short-term fix is already splitting the GOP, just wait until March.
