Returning to the alternative universe in which Obama has balls, we find the following:
Since a US default would be catastropic, and Prez has independent control only of the military, he announces the closure of all bases in Repugnant represented states and congressional districts, so that the necessary cash may be re-directed to default prevention pending raise of debt ceiling.
They used to say that Lyndon Johnson would invite recalcitrant legislators into the Oval Office to watch a map with lights representing such installations in their state or district. One by one, Lyndon would extinguish a light, until the promise of the desired vote was delivered.
Impeachment bait? Who gives a fuck--you only need one third of the Senate +1 to skate.
Cut to parody of the old RCA ad, where John Boehner cocks his head at Obama's knee.
