Boehner seems to be ready to semi-capitulate, or deal - the gist is a short term increase in the debt ceiling but no CR to reopen government. Obama has signaled he would sign a clean debt ceiling increase, and the Dow is up 292 points at this writing late on Thursday afternoon.
So, is this a stupid capitulation or a switch in battlefields to more favorable terrain?
Some savant opined that if not for the shutdown then the ObamaCrash roll out would have been the 24/7 story this month. So one might imagine that come late November, Senate Majority Leader Reid is demanding a one year delay in ObamaCare and Sen. Cruz is pounding the table in favor of forcing it to stay live. In a Walking Dead sort of way.
