“It was not the fault of the Captain of the Titanic.”

Really?  I think the survivors might disagree. 

Which is why Obama will not call his own bluff.

Ever since Obama offered that challenge to Eric Cantor, the chorus of people calling for Obama’s bluff to be called is growing.  Which, of course, is exactly the opposite of what Obama hoped to accomplish by telling people not to call his bluff.

Please note, I was in favor of calling his bluff before he was in favor of not calling his bluff.

“Call his bluff” is the new “Yes we can.”
