My description of Woodward's telling of the story: Obama and Boehner had a tentative agreement, Obama changed it at the last moment and Boehner walked away.

You tell me -- which one matches up closer to Woodward's telling of the story?

And which one is an overly simplistic assessment of it.
Last thing I post on this before my trip to Reno today for The Who concert. This is my description: Obama did NOT walk away from a deal, he changed it with a poison pill because he didn't want a deal and knew with the poison pill that Boehner couldn't get the votes in the House thus no spending cut deal. Woodward stated that quite clearly. Swing and a miss
