5. Boner is just worried about his own ass..

If he gives in too soon, many of his fellow Pubs will try to push himj out of the speakership. I think they're gfoing rto wait until the last possible minute before they admit defeat.

The argument I'd like to see the Dems make is that billions of spending cuts have already taken place...linked to agreements the Dems made with them to increase the spending limits, extend unemployment benefits, and dozens of other give-ins the Pubs forced the Dems to do. At some point they have to face reality and recognize there are some expenses associated with the fed. govt. operations!
