We could have at least had a bargaining chip last night, but the Republican party is too split to even agree amongst themselves.
Did you think he wouldn’t, with every single media outlet, every Twitter, every Late Night Comedian, and the Daily Show saying the world would end, and the sun wouldn’t rise, if he didn’t?
He did. And I am thinking about going back to several threads and looking at the folks that vilified me (and others) when Boner first wavered. I predicted this end based on history and experience. I said then, here is where the surrender begins.
I was excoriated for 1) Not knowing all the facts 2) Predicting doom and gloom 3) Not understanding how it works 4) Delay is not caving... 5) The Senate is powerless 6) We're really waiting for the debt ceiling argument anyway.......
I might be sending out some private e-mails with some poster quotes attached to some of my FRiends reminding them of what they said. Still thinking about it......
Yes, I agree. The ‘little putz’ is not a leader in any sense of the word. Retreat comes to mind and should be the rallying cry of the GOP.
Each member of congress will answer to their constituency for their vote. I have a say, regarding McConnel. He’s running in 2014. I’ll vote democrat before I vote for him. I really hate career politicians, regardless of party.
I don’t know what they are supposed to do if they don’t have the votes.
He always caves.
