Ok, what? Yesterday he wanted to abdicate responsibility and give Obama a blank check. Today he says not a single Republican will vote to raise the debt ceiling. But the debt ceiling will be raised.

I think he's losing his mind. How about he goes somewhere else to have his nervous breakdown and let someone with a spine take over?

He's trying to bamboozle us into thinking that giving Obama all the power (by a vote) will negate his responsibility of a debt ceiling vote.

How about he is negotiating. This is a classic way to negotiate especially when you have the upper hand. One day you will appear to give in to your opponent. The next day you will say that you never agreed to what you said the day before.

If you pay careful attention, Obama has been doing the same. You will read that he is open to entitlement cuts. Then in a subsequent story you will read that he will not consider entitlement cuts.

Both sides are trying to psych each other out. That is what is going on. You are falling for it hook, line and sinker.

What Obama does not know is how far MCConnell is willing to push. If he psych him out properly Obama will cave.

That is the dynamic here.

I don’t believe anything anymore, these people are driving my BP up, the only thing that gives me glee is Obozo acting like a 2 year old.
