Today's debt ceiling conundrum

by folkbum

While the conservatives in my comments section are busily prattling on about how Obama is a front for the Chi-coms, or something, here's where we are today. Dem Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is proposing a debt-ceiling deal that gives Republicans everything they have asked for including things they agreed to in the Biden talks and voted for in the Ryan Budget. Yet GOP House Speaker John Boehner is putting forward a plan that is the single thing that Obama has said he couldn't support--a short-term deal that forces us through all of this again in four months.

This is my question for anyone who likes what Republicans are up to: How is it possible to support a party whose sole purpose anymore seems literally to be saying no to anything Democrats propose, even when those proposals are exactly what Republicans say they want?
