  •  This is why I have been saying all along that (5+ / 0-)

    Boehner (and McConnell) are getting a free pass.  Democrats come out and bemoan "poor John Boehner."  If only he didn't have to deal with his Tea Party caucus he would be able to get a deal.  They claim that Boehner is the reasonable one.  And then the media chimes in and makes excuses for McConnell.  Chuck Todd stated on MTP last Sunday that McConnell was acting "rationally" by refusing to negotiate with the WH because it would mean he would end his career due to a primary from his right.  When has it ever been rational to prioritize your Senate career over the welfare of the country and its citizens?!!?  

    So, you see, it's all President Obama's fault; he is the one being irrational and unreasonable by not giving in to GOP demands.

    But now we know that Boehner and McConnell are right in-line with the Tea Party when it comes to the holy grail in the GOP:  Protect the rich.  So much so that they don't even bother to communicate the President's offers to their caucuses.  They know they are all on the same page.  

    Please, Democrats, stop making excuses for Boehner and McConnell.  Make them own all their actions and decisions just like they blame President Obama  for everything, everywhere, all the time.  

    •  Trust me -- If the Tea Party (2+ / 0-)

      fulfills their threat (promise?) to primary Boehner, I'LL GIVE their candidate money for its primary. Same deal with McConnell.

      It's easier to defeat a TeaOP candidate than an incumbent. I'm betting the Tea Party is blind enough to double down on the strategy that lost them Senate seats last year.
