In what fantasy world do you live in where Obama is going to agree to delay Obamacare? This is his legacy, his pride and joy. The tea party House members are like a guy walking into a bank with a gun pointed to his own head saying, "Give me what I want or I'll shoot!" Shutting down the government does not hurt Obama and it does not hurt democrats. What it *does* do is hurt republicans in the next election. Both sides are willing to let the government shut down. But only republicans will pay a political cost for doing so.
You mistook my numbers. 20% live in the right-wing echo chamber. Closer to 50% think there are problems with Obamacare.
I'm amazed Townhall allowed Debra to post this article. They have been shouting full-throttle the opposite message for as long as I can remember and 99% of their readers agree with Ted Cruz's strategy. I guess the impending freight train of reality is about to slam them in the face and they realized they needed to start preparing for the revelation that this whole defund/delay Obamacare strategy is apocalyptically boneheaded. All it will do is make independants vote against us in the next election. The reason why Boehner and company are so upset at Cruz is that they have the experience to know that Cruz is handing the White House to the democrats in 2016. I heard one commentator sarcastically suggest that Cruz is part of a secret cabal of Liberals. Their strategy is to go hard-right and gin up a tea party battle cry. They do this knowing that the further they drag the party to the right, the more likely that in 2016 the democrats will control the White House, the Senate, AND the House. Too many ultra-right-wingers get all of their news input from Fox, websites like Townhall, and conservative radio. This makes them so unaware of the rest of the country that they don't realize that they themselves only represent about 20% of the nation. They believe that if they just "stand up for what they believe in" that they will somehow magically get their way in our democratic process. Everyone needs to reread this article, then read Mona Charen's article from last week (http://townhall.com/columnists/monacharen/2013/09/27/republicans-suffering-from-post-2012-traumatic-shock-n1710689), and then re-read it again. If you don't, then you can only blame yourself when Hillary gets elected in 2016.
(well, i think it was not the length, but it was the fact that I spelled out "p*ssed off". I didn't realize I was using such mature language)

Well I typed out a long comment and it seems that the Townhall moderators have again showed that they want to censor opposing views (they have a history of deleting my posts when I point out the untruths in their articles; click on my name to see my other comments discussing this). Anyway, since it seems they have imposed a length limit to my comments, I will post my comment in piecemeal below...

This is the comment I want to post on another article. I am posting it here to see if I am able to--in order to see if it is being flagged for content. I'm amazed Townhall allowed Debra to post this article.
