    I read the original Erick Erickson post that this quotes from.  He basically said that the entire effort has to now be focused on killing Obamacare and do so through the CR.

    When I read that this morning, there was some push back but most seemed to agree with him.  If they don't kill this now, so the thinking goes, Obamacare will destroy America and so it doesn't matter if the government is shut down for awhile in order to kill it.  He ended his piece with something to the effect of of saying:  Boehner, keep this government shut down.

    I'll give him credit.  Many tea partiers say that the Republicans should shut down the government over this and in the same breath they blame Obama for the shutdown. (Yeah, the cognitive disonance is strong in that group) At least Erick son of Erick has the balls to exhort  the Republicans to take ownership of the shutdown and keep it going.  It's entirely bat shit crazy to think Obamacare is going to destroy America but at least he is saying that the political hit is worth shutting the ACA down.  Of course, he goes on to say that if they stay strong Obama is the one that will cave.
