Freepers, of course, see this not as an unforced error by the Tea Party caucus, but as surrender!
MichaelP sums it up:
How stupid! Why pick a fight and then give in? Now the rats look like winners.DH:

Venturer is pissed that Boehner didn't even have the decency to ruin Obama's vacation.
clintonh8r plans a Tax Revolt
Boehner folded up like a cheap suit, as expected.
Obama’s Air Force One plane is warming up for the Hawaii flight even as we speak.
Obama nailed it again.
Thanks for nothing Mr. Boehner
There's really only one way to stop this.Worked great in 2009!
Forget eletions. Starve the beast. Stop paying taxes. It will take courage and millions of people, but somehow it must be done.
Terry Mross sees this as proof the Republicans are working with Obama in some kinda grand conspiracy
GeronL is unhappy:
The GOP is not that stupid. They knew exactly what they were doing. They’re helping to get obama re-elected. All they had to do was say “The democrats and obama say they want a year extension. Come February we will remind them.” Now come February they’ll be the heartless republicans who were taken hostage by the tea party and “tried to raise taxes at Christmas”.
As I said on another post when, Romney gets beaten by obama the story will be “Tea Party Extremist Voters Stayed Home”. And that will be the story whether they stay home or not.
