GOP Strategy on the Debt Ceiling
Second, they should pass the law at the last possible minute, to give the Senate and Obama little chance to deal with the result. By making small progress, they can claim some victory while forcing Obama's hand and preventing a public relations disaster.
Obama's posturing about the debt ceiling is a hint that he knows he is in a weak position with respect to the timing that GOP House could use.
However, given their track record, I expect bellicose threats and promises by the Republicans followed by a humiliating collapse with little accomplished. Somebody needs to remind me why I registered Republican in 2008.
