"Boehner throws in the [orange-tear-stained] towel"

:-)

But seriously, of course he did. Who would expect otherwise from this character?

This is interesting though...

"Despite calls from House Budget Chairman Paul Ryan (R-Wisc.) to insist on concessions from President Obama, Boehner knows it's not possible without risking default on the nation's debt."

O really? You insist on concessions do you Paul? If memory serves, that's the same Paul Ryan who just weeks ago pioneered the deal which undid the sequester (you know, that farcically small promised future reduction in the rate of increase of federal spending...which apparently was just too "draconian" for "fiscal conservatives" like Paul Ryan to bear), correct? :-O (!!!) And now he's pretending to "insist on concessions" over the debt ceiling? What a CLOWN!!!
