Fox News: Boehner blinks, says House to vote on 'clean' debt-limit hike The key phrase of the story highlighted. Webster's says, "Capitulate: cease to resist an opponent or an unwelcome demand; surrender." Boehner makes claims later in the linked article that he'll "put up enough GOP votes" to get the bill passed and give "his party" as Boehner says the debt ceiling increase they want with no strings attached. Why on Earth would he want to do that? It's asinine. Fox News analysts state they don't believe the Speaker can get the votes gathered to pass the bill even if he wants it to go through. That's the only glimmer we've got. We've got a spineless party leadership giving the nation away as fast as the Marxist Democrats can destroy it. Can anyone say words like "secede," "revolt," "Constitutional convention"? It's time. We've had enough.
