    turns out to be a feint or, on balance, a modest common-sense reform.  Cold comfort for you, I'm sure.

    But keep in mind that Boehner and Mcconnell don't want to bargain because their starting position is awful and they are completely outclassed by the President.  

    The only way for them to win is not to play.

    Unfortunately for them, the sequester is designed so that not playing is also a loss.  Right now they're thinking "at least Obama isn't winning" but look at the polls; Obama is winning.

    Every time Republicans in Congress manufacture a budget crisis, they end up on their backs like Charlie Brown kicking the football.

    And the debt-ceiling is coming up.
