Boehned Again

House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) can't get his own debt ceiling bill to add up, and he's getting major tea-fections in his fractured yet intransigent Republican Party as the clock ticks down and Wall Street gets ticked off at the GOP.

Comin' up empty or passing a piece of legislation that gets amended away in the Senate?

Showdown approaching. I'm betting on the threat of the 14th Amendment growing stronger the longer the GOP have the legislative edge. But if their edge evaporates, then the question is whether the Dems can peel off enough GOP votes to support their own bill.

Otherwise, Mr. President: The Constitutional Option.
