6. I think this came from the White House

And Carney sort of confirmed it today, noting that Boehner wanted it and the president was willing to agree if Boehner met his other demands.

Politically, wouldn't it make more sense for President Obama to want to look like Boehner didn't give him a choice on this, if they were actually going to agree to it?

I feel like the reason to seem so openly willing to do it is if they don't expect the GOP to agree to it. Then they can say how far the president and Democrats in the House were willing to go and the GOP was still unreasonable.
