    right off the curb.

    Methinks this is what the GOP wants - they think it'll put them in the drivers seat (they don't care that it'll be further in the ditch).

    •  I don't think a lot of them even care (4+ / 0-)

      whether they're in a better position now or in January. It's all about ideological purity and the "my way or the highway" attitude. The punditry can't seem to wrap their beltway addled brains around the fact that the majority of House Republicans don't give a shit about passing legislation that Obama will sign, they just want to prove how loyal to their base they are. Why did they spend most of the past two years passing non-starter bills on abortion and women's health instead of focusing on jobs?

      Let's not let 2014 be anything like 2010. Republicans only win when we stay home!
