Debt Limit Updates

Last night on Sean Hannity's program, Republican Senators Tom Coburn and Saxby Chambliss, both members of the so-called Gang of Six, directly repudiated the notion that their meetings and proposals were ever intended to affect the debt limit issue.

Chambliss explicitly accused Wonderboy of grabbing the Gang of Six efforts for cover in order to disguise and obscure his lack of leadership on fiscal matters.

Earlier on Fox News, Charles Krauthammer opined on the House GOP Tea Party-backed members' objections to Boehner's plan. He made the argument, very effectively, that for those House members to fail to back Boehner, and trigger a crisis, was to become co-owners of the Wonderboy's lackluster economy and any resulting negative economic consequences.

Krauthammer then reiterated that the real goal is 2012, not August 2nd. That a failure of the House to pass Boehner's bill, demonstrating an ability to offer a solution, will mean failure next year to win the Senate and White House.

Sage remarks indeed.
