    He's trying, and failing, to preposition Harry Reid to take the blame for a shutdown.  It won't work.

    •  It will work with his base (0+ / 0-)

      They already think Harry Reid is a minion to the devil incarnate, along with Nancy Pelosi, Rachel Maddow, Elizabeth Warren and Michael Moore.

      If Harry says 'no' that's all the ammunition he needs.

      Cruz is raising money. Whether it's for a run for President in 2016 depends on whether he can raise more money running or sitting on the sidelines. Grifters gotta grift, ya know.
