Boehner is being played like a chump. This always happens to republican leadership that has been in Washington too long. They think that the liberal Washington media is actually speaking for mainstream America. Spending is the issue here. They forget why they were elected and the core principles that they supposedly represent. Just stand on principle and there is no need to worry about headlines. He should have used this as an opportunity to educate the uninformed on baseline budgeting and proposed real fairness- - across the board spending cuts of at least 1%. that is something most americans can understand and relate to. Instead, he lets Obama control the language and is beaten from the get go. Boehner couldn't negotiate with a 3rd grader
