The Democrats are doing only one thing wrong in this ridiculous crisis, and that's not coalescing around a message with force. It's sitting there; but they're focusing on what John Boehner is doing, not on what he's not doing.
What he's not doing: Bringing up the clean CR for a vote.
There should be no discussion -- NONE -- unless the House has an opportunity to vote on a clean CR.
Boehner can bring it up for a vote any time he wants. The Senate has sent it to him at least three times. We need to stop focusing on any other part of this charade. Instead, the Democrats need to keep asking the same question: Why are you keeping the House from voting on a clean Continuing Resolution, Speaker?
And yes, I know the answer: He'd lose the vote. All the more reason to hammer the point home.
