So far so good. The WSJ explains it all for the Congressmen who can still read:
This is the quality of thinking—or lack thereof—that has afflicted many GOP conservatives from the beginning of this budget showdown. They picked a goal they couldn't achieve in trying to defund ObamaCare from one House of Congress, and then they picked a means they couldn't sustain politically by pursuing a long government shutdown and threatening to blow through the debt limit.And then, all of a sudden, its Obama's fault for letting the crazies go their limit.
President Obama called their bluff, no doubt in part to blame the disruption on the GOP and further tarnish the party's public image.Begin comparisons to the inequeties of the Treaty of Versailles in three....two....one... Oh, I'm sorry, Lindsay Graham has already gone there with a pre-emptive self pity lightning strike.
