<<The President had given warning long ago he would not deal with Republican terrorism, (although he didn't use those words,) if they were once again going to black mail the country. And now, because he stood his ground, Telegraph is complaining about campaign lies?

Dear me! You mean there is POLITICS going on in Washington DC?

The Congress has no OBLIGATION to extend the debt limit. The President has no OBLIGATION to bargain over an extension.

All the actors are properly accountable for the actions they take.

In short, it's disingenuous to accuse Republicans of blackmail. It was a political fight resolved by political means.
