Obama should make an unscheduled appearance on the House floor and approach the Speaker's podium while they are debating the "grand compromise". Then in one hand he would hold up a single one page bill simply saying "raise the debt ceiling", and in his other hand he would be holding up a Presidential executive order saying he will use article 4 of the 14th amendment to raise the debt ceiling.
Then he would say, "OK folks, here's the new deal....you either pass this bill, or I'll use this [the executive order]. That's my compromise and those are your two choices. Either way, the first thing in the morning the debt ceiling will be raised."
And then he should quote FDR: "The test of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance of those who have much; it is whether we provide enough for those who have too little."
Then he turns around with his Secret Service entourage and walks out.
The Supreme Court (even though it is packed with Republican sympathizers) won't dispute Obama because even THEY aren't radical Tea Party members that are hell bent on taking down the full faith of the U.S. Government.
But Obama won't do that. Instead he will sign off on the "budget deal" that makes drastic cuts to Medicare and Social Security without any taxes on the rich.
Great "compromise" Democrats! Never negotiate with terrorists! (Bernie Sanders for President in 2012)
