"In a just world, Speaker John Boehner’s failure to get the votes for a Republican debt-ceiling plan that is already doomed to certain Senate defeat should put pressure on Republicans to compromise. But that doesn’t seem likely. ... Boehner may lose some personal prestige over the affair; he could even lose his job. Yet the broader Republican strategy of playing chicken with the economy seems to be having its intended effect of weakening President Obama." (07/29/11)
