Days of July

Like Kennedy, Obama made the mistake of looking weak to his enemies.  In Obama's case, the enemies are the wingnut right.  The debt ceiling has become Obama's version of the Cuban Missile crisis.  Kennedy (and the East Coast of the US) narrowly managed to survive the crisis with a mixture of patient caution and steely resolve.  In the end, nuclear war was avoided by a very thin margin.

Can Obama manage to lead the country through a crisis that might end in an almost equal catastrophe? 

Should I be buying gold coins and ammunition?  I couldn't afford many gold coins, I'm afraid.
