President Obama has angrily summoned leaders from both parties to the negotiating table tomorrow, accusing Boehner of leaving him "at the altar" on several occasions. The likely next step is last-ditch small ball:
In light of multiple media reports that it was Congressional Democrats who were mounting a furious insurrection against the leaked details of the Boehner/Obama accord (they were "fuming" that it didn't raise taxes), could the president have shifted the goalposts late in the game -- prompting Boehner's exit? We'll see if any details emerge over the weekend, but for now, DC is once again a big, hot mess. Tick, tock.
