Permit us, and our Ushanka readers, a little arrogance. We, all of us, called this.
We've come too far to think that John Boehner would ever stand on principle. Fool us once? Hell, he's fooled us several hundred times.
To paraphrase Rush, "They will snatch defeat from the jaws of victory."

Apparently our dear leader has adopted a plan to negotiate, but just never agree. Even if the GOP give him everything he asks for. He thrives on chaos, but it appears the chaos has spiraled out of his control.
Anyhoo, as Dan Rather would say, the story may not be true but the assumptions behind it are. The GOP has surrendered and is just waiting for the victor to get on his horse and ride out to the white flag.
