How the Fiscal Cliff Talks Stalled

The Wall Street Journal has a behind-the-scenes look at how the fiscal cliff negotiations faltered.

"Mr. Obama repeatedly lost patience with the speaker as negotiations faltered. In an Oval Office meeting last week, he told Mr. Boehner that if the sides didn't reach agreement, he would use his inaugural address and his State of the Union speech to tell the country the Republicans were at fault."

Replied Obama: "You get nothing. I get that for free."
