Thanks in part to your unfortunate habit of caving in to Republicans before negotiations begin, the Republicans have now demanded that you pass a Balanced Budget Amendment before they will raise the debt ceiling. What a fine pickle you have gotten yourself into. There is an easy way out of this. You, as Commander in Chief with access to all information, need only declare that we have won in Afghanistan and you are bringing everybody home. That way you can bring Gen. Petraeus home so you can name him head of the CIA (Bad Idea!) and not have to name some loser to replace him.
