[T]he opposition bloc led by [Jim] Jordan appears to be crumbling, as leaderships message seems to be sinking in. Sources tells NRO that a number of members who were confirmed no votes against the Boehner plan announced during the meeting that they would be voting yes. One of those members, Rep. Blake Farenthold (R., Texas) told reporters that while he would like to snap my fingers and change the world like I Dream of Genie of Samantha on Bewitched, Republicans need to take what we can get.

The GOP called again last night to ask for money (as if I had any). I kindly said that I will contribute to my candidate of choice when she decides to declare her candidacy.
I believe it was a class of 80, caucus I am not sure of.
That flag needs to be yellow with a snake on it.
That's easy to do. Dems could do that in any future budget bill. The Pubes will protest. We'll run up against a possible government shutdown. One side will fold. Guess which side that will be? Spending caps gone....
What a bunch of gutless morons! Obama is an idiot, and these clowns can’t even face HIM down? They are paving the way for a third party and Obama victory in 2012!
Look like the GOP flag is white instead. I can’t stand these feckless dolts.
If you want the cuts you need to take back the Senate and the White House in 2012.
November 2010 was not enough. Stop pretending it was a bigger victory than it was.
Harp all you like about Boehner and the House GOP but they've passed bills that die or are tabled in the Senate: repealing ObamaCare, "Cut, Cap & Balance", etc.
You have representation. Those bills prove it. But you don't have enough. Make it happen in 2012. Do not stab the House GOP in the back. It only helps the Democrats.
OBAMA LOVES YOU TODAY.
I don’t, I want the republicans to get the win. Do you want Obama getting any credit at all to take in the election? We are one swing vote away on the Supreme Court from losing EVERYTHING. Next years elections are more important than this debt deal. And by the way, I hate the deal, but no way do we win this in the court of public opinion. I don’t want the independents blaming the republicans next year at the polls where it really counts.
“I agree with Clyde Wilson that America can’t be saved or returned to its roots until the Republican Party is destroyed.”
The bill the GOP is signing onto is not the bill we saw yesterday.
Boehner had to tighten it up to hit the CBO scoring target.
No one caved. The bill was improved.
Let the GOP fiddle with this thing until the election. If they solve the debt problem NOW, it will give all the credit to the muslim in the whitehouse. He will appear strong and ......
Vote for whatever you want, chickensh!t GOP.
See y’all after our downgrade.
Welcome to the third world.
I hope they have their bags packed cause they will be VOTED OUT. We will have Sarah Palin for President for sure.
Well said. And let me add that we should enjoy the victory that was achieved here and, make no mistake, the left wing got their asses handed to them.
Obama is ad odds with the left wing fringe because he didn't tank the "Bush Tax Cuts for the Rich" as he promised he would. They see him as weak.
I don’t but it, Owen. They caved deeper than the Carlsbad Caverns.
You are so right. The Democrats have played this correctly. They have the Republicans negotiating and compromising with theirselves!
I like your punch list.
Republican first, Conservative last, eh?
