Senate Dems say not so fast or the Party of No?



senior Senate Democratic aide said “don’t assume” Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) will accept the six-week debt-limit extension House Republicans are coalescing around.

Reid again called on Republicans to reopen the government and raise the debt ceiling and pledged Democrats would then negotiate with them.

Man...I did not think the Dems could frick this up worse. Making Boehner and the GOP look like the reasonable ones (which they are, but now even the MSM can't sugarcoat this).

Good God Almighty.
That would border on near-criminal-level political incompetence.

Dems must be getting their strategery advice straight from Stuart Stevens.
I'd have supposed he'd be the sole political consultant in the last 50yrs who could be that stupid.

The GOP continues to back down and come to the table with concessions, and the Dems want to keep the stalemate going.

I think they sorta do. This was a really dumb idea by the GOP (causing a shutdown due to not liking OC).

I think some DEMs do not want to let them off the hook at this point and want to embarrass them to an extent.

Probably not a great strategy that would start hurting them instead of the GOP.

They will accept the 30 days. Reid is just yapping most likely.

Reid is something else isn't he

Reid & Boehner should both step down if they really care about this Country. It's obvious neither one is getting the job done. Past time to give others a shot, and under no circumstances, let Pelosi near a leadership role. That lady is one misguided individual and makes me really question. How do some of these people get elected?

Don't think it will happen, but would not be shocked.

Both parties are pretty damn dumb and one should NEVER underestimate how dumb. Just always assume they are even more dumb than you think and make assessments from there.

How do you figure? I'd think it would look more like:
1. Dems stood strong and didn't offer concessions
2. Repubs/Boehner are spineless and are now backtracking
3. Dems claim victory by saying "See? We were right all along and now the Repubs have finally come to their senses after shutting the govt down ( )"
4. MSM spins it to Dems favor
5. Rinse and repeat

Maybe I'm off here, but I think this showdown of sorts really has huge implications - not just for today, but going forward into the 2014 midterms. If the Repubs submit to the will of the D's, what does that say about the establishment?
