Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Obama was trained as a constitutional lawyer.  If push comes to shove he can invoke the 14th Amendment, specifically Section 4 of the Due Process Clause:

The validity of the public debt of the United States, authorized by law ...  shall not be questioned.

Invoking the 14th Amendment would inflame the TeaBaggers BUT it would probably be supported by the general public as well as the plutocrats.
