    Instead of the "bipartisanship" which we've become accustomed to, they will probably oppose everything President Obama does.

    •  Their entire game-plan for 2014 (8+ / 0-)

      (one year away) is the "disaster" of Obamacare.  Obviously, the technical issues will be resolved and fade in memory and the reality of the insurance companies' (and Republican governors') complicity in complicating the rollout will be more clear.  That is their only gambit, so far...until yesterday.

      Against this, Republicans have to defend the government shutdown (which will also have faded in memory).

      But the playground of the Far-Right is now seething with enmity!  They're going to get even for stopping their filibuster game!  Even though they've lost power, they will show just how obstructionist they can be in every way possible: NO legislation, NO agreements, NO NOTHING.

      And the electorate will be watching...

      ... and hit Republicans with it again, and again, and again ... constantly.

      Preferably coupled with an image of a whining toddler.

      I remember a time when that was happening more consistently, and how it made Republicans really really defensive ... and really, really angry.
