24. The most astounding part of this whole "crisis"

is that the Republicans were the chief architect of it- in the name of getting serious about the debt/deficit and are now basically trying to wriggle out of the deal. They decided last year that they wanted a huge showdown over the debt ceiling, which, of course, led to the failed supercommittee, which then led to the sequestration deal that the Republicans are upset about. They are even rewriting history to make it look like President Obama forced them into the deal.
