The reason the debt deal can’t get done is because of pressure on both President Obama and Speaker of the House John Boehner. Last Thursday, we went over the Tea Party objections to any debt compromise, and some of you were angry with that analysis. But as Charles Krauthammer reiterated Tuesday night, the Tea Party is a problem when compromise becomes necessary.
President Obama has the same kind of problem from the far left. The insidious MoveOn organization is actually threatening any Democrat who doesn’t toe the far-left line, that is raise taxes. President Obama is also being intimidated by the far left.
