So even as President Obama cuts short his Hawaii vacation in the hopes of getting something done on taxes before they go up at the end of the year, John Boehner is keeping his butt firmly planted Ohio, where he's apparently negotiating with ... his fellow Republicans. By telephone.
I can't say I blame Boehner for not wanting to talk with his fellow Republicans face-to-face, especially after they rejected his Plan B. If I were him, I'd definitely want to keep a box of tissues and tumbler filled with scotch at my side, and I certainly wouldn't want any of it caught on camera.
