Chuck Todd: GOP Has Palin, Cruz to ‘Blame’ for Bad ‘Treatment They’re Getting from Democrats,’ Obama
mediaite.com ^ | October 14, 2013 | Noah Rothman

Posted on 10/14/2013 11:08:39 AM PDT by Tailgunner Joe

NBC News Chief White House Correspondent and MSNBC host Chuck Todd reported on Monday that tea party figures like Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin helped scuttle a potential deal to raise the debt ceiling over the weekend when they led World War II veterans to march on the White House. Todd reported that the tea party Republicans are “doing everything they can” to keep the shutdown and debt ceiling standoff “alive.”

“While the non-tea party Republicans are desperately trying to end this standoff, the tea party Republicans are doing everything they can to keep it alive,” Todd said on Monday.

He said that Cruz and Palin attended a rally with elderly veterans at the WWII Memorial over the weekend where they were actively “fueling protesters who tore down barricades and carried them to the White House where they clashed with police.”

“Every time non-tea party Republicans want to complain about the treatment their getting from Democrats and the White House, they may only have these folks to blame,” he continued.

Todd laughed after playing a clip of Cruz saying the Democrats in Congress should give up on the “games” that led to the shutdown and the debt ceiling standoff.

“The solution to the standoff, at least according to establishment Republicans, has always been to point out that the spending victories of the last few years are victories for the GOP and that they should declare that and move on,” Todd continued.

“It’s just one more example of how the tea party has been a net negative for the Republicans post-2010,” he concluded. “Gave them the enthusiasm to win the House, but what’s it done since?”

Does everyone understand increasing the debt limit is simply giving the government more money we don’t have?

It only benefits them.

Chuck Todd needs the perspective he’d get from being strung up on a lamp post.

Amen. I guess until and unless that fear of what We The People will do to tyrants manifests itself as a reality in their minds - they think they can bully and shame us into silence and capitulation.

What he's actually claiming here is that Obama scuttled any deal because he was insulted by their presence at the rally. What other possible effect of the rally can he be referring to?

So President Stompyfeet continues his tantrum, and this toady scolds those who mussed Obama's hair just when he was starting to calm down.

Scuttling a potential deal to raise the debt ceiling does not sound like a bad thing to me, as the “deal” would in no way bring any discipline to spending.

Any “deal” with the Current Regime now squatting in the White Hut (or “Spite” Hut) is invariably totally unilateral, with no lasting social benefit to anybody, and only to the greater shame and degradation of the Republicans.

They need to make up their mind... “if the vets rebuffed them for trying to hijack the demonstration” then how can they blame them for “leading it”.

They can’t keep their lies straight.

For once this nitwit is right. Cruz, et al are fighting an heroic battle on the last hill we have to live or die on. The few, the proud, we band of brothers, etc.
Sometimes, when the steamroller is about to steamroll us, a landmine is about our only defense. Oh, we could jump out of the way — but at what cost? At the cost of having the rest of the country, the Constitution, the American heritage, murdered. We have a few heroes; but we need some more. More Clarence Thomases and fewer John Robertses.
