Sunday's Washington Post contains an excellent article: Obama's evolution: Behind the failed 'grand bargain' on the debt. Congratulations to Peter Wallsten, Lori Montgomery, and Scott Wilson for this combination of analysis and tick tock reporting.
You can, if you like, compare it to something I posted at the time: Why the Obama-Boehner talks fell apart. I think this means I scooped the Post by about eight months.
I also wrote a contemporaneous post opposing the Gang of Six plan that received some attention at the time.
