So far at least, I don't think Boehner plans to cave. I think Obama's gambit to blame Republicans into folding and raising taxes isn't working as planned...yet. The reason is because the public doesn't seem to care. The public has reacted to these dire predictions with a collective ho-hum.
I saw a poll yesterday that stated that 83% thought we need had a SPENDING PROBLEM. Not 51% or 61%. 83%
It was not even close. The other 17% probably do not even know that we have a debt problem. However, they know who got kicked off of American Idol last time.
The cat is out of the bag. People have had to cut their own spending and are sick and tired of the govt. not doing the same. The trouble is that noboby(not even here on FR)wants it to come out of THEIR wallet.
I see it as you do. A bluff too far.

Wish I could agree. We have seen this train wreck before.
Boehner will talk tough and probably let the Sequester deadline pass. The kenyan will brow beat the GOP for a day or two and then McConnell will pull out the fake cut deal they have in reserve. The deal will be fake cuts for real tax increases. Total victory for the Dems.
All this posturing by Boehner is BS for the GOP base. I don’t buy it at all. They will sell us out again. They have never, ever strongly opposed Obama. Why would they start now, on this?
I think Obamas (and the news media’s) gambit to blame Republicans into folding and raising taxes isnt working as planned...yet.
the news media keeps playing chicken little “fiscal cliff”, “sequester” , blah blah blah
hope people see the liberal media for what it is
hope boner sees how the media is manipulating him
Because every time the democrats want to steal and spend more of our wages, we always get threatened with the same old thing. A gazillion teachers will be lost. Old people will rot away. Children will be begging for food. The earth with rip itself in half. Bla blas bla. It's always the same old story. Mankind will cease to exist if they don't get more of our money to buy votes from the freeloaders in time for the next election.
They said the same things about the stimulus. They said the same thing about free birth control for loose woman. They said the same thing about Oboma care. They said the same thing about tax increase. If we didn't give them everything they wanted, time itself would cease to exist - and all us people would DIE a horrable death!!!.
