When O won his second term, I knew things would get much worse. But this bad this quick should give most repubs a reason to fight. That Boehner is now criticising the tea party ( who are only expressing their opinion ) is pathetic and dictatorial, and shows that they haven't learned a thing since 2012. Your point about them shutting down the govt. for any reason no matter how much the repubs give into them is correct. The dems ability to stage an emergency and blame it on repubs is amazing. You would think this game is so obvious that it is now time for even the stupidest repubs to start fighting back.
