Making Boehner and the GOP look like the reasonable ones (which they are, but now even the MSM can't sugarcoat this).
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?
