If politics is motivating Obama it's Republican politics. The entire debt ceiling charade was planned well in advance in the beginning days of the 112th Congress by Eric Cantor, and Mr. DesJarlais is concerned with politics? Please. Mr. Desjarlais was sent to Washington to do something, and I'm willing to bet running his mouth off wasn't it!
