Obama is playing Republican leaders (seasoned fools) as only a Puppet Master can. No doubt Obama has few back up plans in his back pocket.

Newt! Newt! Have you learned nothing at all these years since you’ve been out of Congress? This nation was founded, and our Constitution drafted, only because rational people of good will were willing to compromise. You’re a historian. You should know that. Our country demands more than petty ideologies and scorched earth politics.

Also, the deficit projection for the next 10 years are $10 Trillion and cutting even 4 Trillion means we end up 125% of GDP-probably best case too (falling revenue everywhere)!There is no substitute for deep spending cuts for years-wish there was! Republicans are far from perfect (understatement), but they’re the party of less government! Big government is the problem, not the solution! Honesty is the best policy and time for change!

This is how the constitution is written. Does Mitt want us to ignore the constitution and just blame Obama?
