...For some reason he let himself get convinced that [the House Republicans' refusal to raise the debt ceiling in August, 2011] is constitutional, or maybe he was just afraid that the court fight that would ensue over this would endanger his reelection effort. In any case, he missed an historic opportunity to end the truly asinine charade of these repeated fights over the debt ceiling. If he had done the right and brave thing, to declare the debt ceiling unconstitutional and simply blow past it, he would not have had to propose this silly sequester to Congress. He is indeed at fault, and it was political cowardice that led to this current unpleasantness.
