NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- The consensus is that House Speaker John A. Boehner (R., Ohio) has painted himself into a corner between the Tea Party Republicans and vetoes from President Obama. As a result, he either has to cave and face the wrath of his caucus -- or play hardball with the media against him, as it is dutifully doing Obama's bidding.However, Boehner has a way out that will get him a significant consolation prize, without risking the media's wrath surrounding even the risk of getting close to a debt default.
