Teabagger Narrative is: The Senate Sold Us Out

From the lips of Cruz... no doubt it will bounce around RW talk radio in the coming days.

Great news for Dems... could mean lots of Republican Senators and Sen. candidates get some heavy primary opposition from the Teahadists...

=Dems maintain control in the Senate (if it was ever realistically in doubt)

Teabag Endgame is Impeachment, Will They Risk Default to Try It?

Remember what Palin said just yesterday:

"Itís time for the president to be honest with the American people for a change. Defaulting on our national debt is an impeachable offense, and any attempt by President Obama to unilaterally raise the debt limit without Congress is also an impeachable offense," she wrote... http://talkingpointsmemo.com/livewire/palin-obama-is-flirting-with-impeachable-offenses

I don't give her credit for being quite that clever, so this must be the talking point bouncing around the Teaparty echo chamber.

What I am worried about is that this reflects the end-game for the teabaggers who will try to throw-in any monkey wrench into the works to make it happen? Certainly, they were responsible for today's rejection of the Reid/McConnell plan.

Palin all but telegraphed how they want to proceed... the only question is their enough corporate leverage on the more moderate republicans to raise the ceiling before they force the President's hand on whether, or not he would invoke the 14th Amendment

Republican Caucus Agrees to NOTHING this Morning (Spkr. Boehner's news conference)

in addition to accomplishing nothing, did anyone catch the body language between Boehner and Cantor? In addition to the nation being on the precipice, we are seeing the Republicans fracture and stab each other in the back before our eyes.

At least that part is fun to watch

Just watched the raw video from NBC on Roku, deliberate provocation today

Police and journalists outnumbered the police who were pushed against a fence. One teahadist deliberately assaulted an officer.
