WSJ: Support Boehner or Re-elect Obama

House Republicans need to help House Speaker John Boehner carry the day in debt-ceiling negotiations — or they will hand President Barack Obama another term on a silver platter, according to a Wall Street Journal editorial.

The debate is headed toward a beat-the-clock climax, as Obama pleaded for public support for a tax increase and Boehner’s and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s plans compete for attention, the Journal notes. Boehner’s two-stage proposal is the more credible of the two, the editorial opines.
