I will say he is not the sharpest knife in the drawer despite or because of his Ivy League pedigree.
This time, though, Obama didn’t cave — at least, not yet.
The government is shuttered and the nation is on the verge of defaulting on its debts. But public opinion has turned sharply against the Republican Party. And the GOP’s corporate and Wall Street backers are threatening to de-fund it.
Suddenly the Republicans are acting like the school-yard bully who terrorized the playground but finally got punched in the face. They’re in shock. They’re humiliated. They’re trying to come up with ways of saving face.
We will see. The ball is in Bend Over Barry's court.
I still say it is nothing but a bunch of political theater designed to force "austerity" down the throats of the American people.
I hope I am wrong, but I am rarely wrong when it comes to this piece of shit of a president.
