Boehner has announced intentions to repeat last year's debt limit hostage situation.

This is completely predictable since this worked very well for the GOP in severely weakening President Obama last summer, they don't care how bad the GOP Congress comes off as long as it hurts Obama. And it did, very badly, last time. I think Obama's severely weakened state at the end of that last year led directly to Rick Perry getting into the race.

President Obama had better have a better plan to deal with this than last year, getting strung along for weeks and then giving everything away at the last moment. If he plays it the same, he will lose by 5 percent popular vote and a lot of electoral votes in November, in my opinion, lame as Mitt Romney may be as a candidate.
