Anyone knows that the October 17 debt default limit is overwhelmingly more important than "Tailgunner Ted" Cruz shutting down the government. ("Tailgunner Joe" use to mean Senator Joe McCarthy.) So soon enough it will become OK for GOP to side with the Democrats, and the "aura" of the Tea Party Putsch will be broken.
Apparently Speaker Boehner is already putting out that personally, he will not create a debt default. Wednesday night, Speaker Boehner officially told both parties that the White House will "Not Negotiate." The Democratic House and Senate Leaders both acknowledged that they had already met the Speakers demands, concerning numbers. Senator McConnell was irrelevant, as usual--muttering something. Speaker Boehner can easily work with that, and them, and then with the Tea Party on board.
Business leaders will abandon the Speaker in any default scenario. Business public relations is already under way, and originating after White House meetings.
So the Tea Party "spell" is already being broken. Anyone recalls that one of the Tea Party candidates thought she was witch, or something, in one or another election campaign.
Then the public will start to find out the real numbers in support of the national health plan.
"Crow, James Crow: Shaken, Not Stirred!)
(Tea Party senator can ride around Beltway, in Ford Bronco, with Hell's Angels escort, even(?)! "Go Ted Go! Run Cruz Run!" can be on all the spectator signs! "If the glove don't fit, you must acquit!" can again be the lawyer-like, thing to suggest! Apparently, it's even OK to hire Michael Jackson's doctor, when the need arises!)
