    Count on it.  As long as they run the House it's just CR after CR with constant threats of default and government closure.  I'd be shocked if they don't pull more of these stunts in 2014.  Most of the GOP caucus is more concerned with acting sufficiently crazy to avoid getting primaried than they are winning general elections.

      Particularly since they got nothing out of this one. There MO is always to double-down not to backtrack.

    •  If continuing CR's that's good news for Democrats. (3+ / 0-)

      It would be like constsantly tearing off a scab. Speaker Pelosi will be pleased come Nov., 2014.

      then I will be ready to agree with you. Particularly if all the wrinkles in Obamacare have been ironed out.

      For once, though, I would like to see Democrats turn out in force for a midterm. We need them to be either enthused or outraged in that 2 month window before the election.

    •  One more CR, probably. More than that, unlikely. (0+ / 0-)

      The neocons (note to merde stream media, they are not moderates in DC; you have irresponsively let them bury the neoconservative label) will yank the choke collar tightly on their Frankenbagger spawn. The Corporate Masters shall demand it.

      That doesn't mean that many grassroots Republicans will go along with it, but I would expect the GOP leadership to exert more control. There will be much more funding in 2014 for the neocons, although the Koch bros. and some other libertarian types may still fund the Teapartiers. But there may be some lip service and even a bit of token compromising in DC to avoid total collapse. How that plays in the primaries will be anyone's guess. Will the top down bullet points from Fox and Fiends get through with all the advertising or has 30 years of brainwashing and fear mongering finally gotten completely out of neo-fascist control?
