We have seen this kabuki dance before. Obama and the Reps wait until the very last minute to approve a deal. The reason is obvious. When you make it a crisis, you can avoid going thru the normal vetting process for a bill. You eliminate discussion and amendments. An oligarchy makes the decision and you have to pass the bill to learn what is in it.
I am sick of these politicians who create an artificial crisis, resolve it at the last minute with a short term solution that doesn't address the underlying cause, and then expect pats on the back for solving the problem. In the meantime, we continue on an unsustainable spending binge that will inevitably destroy the economy. And most of all, I blame the voters for keeping these politicians in power so they can receive all the benefits the welfare state has to offer. We deserve the government we get.

All smoke and mirrors to keep the talk off the debt ceiling. IMO that's what Obama is coming home for.
