Harry Reid is a pimp...  It was OPapaDoc all along.

There will be a short term bump for Democrats for a few weeks, maybe even months, but soon after, the reality of the Obamacare nightmare will come home to roost.  And thanks to people like Senator Ted Cruz, the Republican Party will benefit greatly from that inevitable future.

The Republicans would be benefiting NOW from Obamacare's disastrous opening had they not decided to shutdown the government over defunding it.   Instead, the shutdown is front and center, giving HHS cover to fix the glitches.  Cooler heads said to wait, pass a CR and fight on the debt ceiling.

But no.  Hotheads insisted that a short-term CR is where the battle needed to be fought, and look where we are.  Boehner's down to offering weaker and weaker bills.  Obama knows the Republicans have no leverage, so he's content to sit back and watch the GOP House BEG him to get involved.  Why would he, at this point?  He's winning.

The GOP is going to look back on this as a huge mistake, especially if this drags on for a month and affects the credit rating of the United States.  Ted Cruz will be viewed as a loudmouth disaster. 
Roy Moore's "spiritual warfare" is driving past a junior high without stopping.

I have always felt a "glitch" is a small, easily solved problem.  Obamacare is not a "glitch", it is a disaster. :peeonobama:
