“Earlier in his presidency, Mr. Obama made the catastrophic mistake – in the face of just this sort of extortion – to believe in Mr. Boehner’s willingness to be reasonable.” The Republicans have been saying since summer 2009 that they will not compromise with the Democrats; maybe Obama’s finally noticed.
