'Unconditional surrender'

'Unconditional surrender' | Bernie Sanders' Campaign | Scoop.it
About an hour after President Obama held a pretty impressive press conference at the White House, Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) hosted a much briefer event -- 5 minutes compared to 68 minutes -- in which he made several odd-but-important claims.
DrSophi's insight:

Maddow: 

"Let's make this plain: what Boehner is condemning as "unconditional surrender" is his own preferred policy. Does the Speaker not understand this? Has he forgotten his own proposal from five weeks ago?

The White House doesn't want anything extraordinary here -- Obama is willing to support a straightforward spending measure with no strings attached and he's asked Boehner to do the same. The result is a center-right compromise, with low spending levels liberals don't like at all. Since the Speaker has spent nearly all of 2013 endorsing this position, anyone who took his latest tantrum seriously isn't paying close enough attention.

As of this morning, Boehner's official position is that (a) Congress needs to meet its responsibilities; (b) if Congress fails to meet its responsibilities, the results will likely be catastrophic; and (c) Republicans will refuse to meet its responsibilities unless Democrats accept concessions intended to make GOP extremists happy.

If there's a defense to justify such madness, I haven't heard it."
