McCain, Graham and McConnell are not working for the good of the GOP in these negotiations.

If Boehner brings the senate bill to the floor without caucus support, his speakership is going to be in big trouble.

The House will pass whatever Reid sends over. 

If Boehner loses his speakership, I'd bet he won't care.  Who wants to try to govern with these FreedomWorks sock puppets calling the shots?

Every single time the Dems own a failure, the GOP manages to somehow start infighting and snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.

I'm frustrated with the entire elite power structure, be they 'liberals', 'moderates', or 'conservatives'.  Ted Cruz doesn't have the interest of the GOP in mind, either, but  I do think he has the interest in a strong USA in mind by his actions.  I'm not a fan of Cruz, either, but I don't think he's is setting himself up for so much abuse from his own party because he craves attention.

Trump has created a cult and looks more and more like Hitler every day.

Don't hate 'em.  I just think they're digging the hole deeper for Republicans.

They forced the House GOP to postpone a vote; now a bill comes from the Senate that will be worse than the one they were debating.

If the Rebubs would just one time stand together and fight something they might actually win..but no..there is nothing but infighting and one-up man-ship..you never see the Dems do this..no matter what, right or wrong they stick together...Repub's are easy marks and Obama knows it..

Think about it for a minute.  How do you win a fight from one House of Congress?  The Senate can shut it down, and the President can veto it if the Senate passes it.  3/4 of each House is required to override a veto.

We have to pick fights we have a chance of winning.  To think we could defund Obamacare was one of the most colossally stupid propositions I've heard in my life.  Yet Ted Cruz thought he could do it.

Or maybe he knew he could never do it, and raising his profile was what this was all about.

Actually, he wasn't.  He managed two Bush victories.  He also managed Bush to two victories as Texas governor.

You don't like him, but he's good, which is why FOXNEWS hired him.

Why was it Rove's job to defend Bush?  Rove's job was to get him elected.  Bush's "aw shucks" manner, and thinking the best of everyone, was his downfall.

Bush doesn't give a rat's ass what anybody thinks of him, which is the big difference between him and Jug Ears, whose narcissism knows no bounds.

Rove himself admitted that he was the one who advised Bush not to respond to all the negative press and what all the Dems and press constantly spewed about him....it was my impression Bush wanted to fight back and Rove advised him not to.....it's in his book btw

It appears you've been right about this. At this point, there isn't a win for the GOP. And, in a time when the administration's beyond incompetent roll out of Obamacare should be the story, the schism in the GOP takes the limelight.

If the fragile economy crashes because of this, the GOP is going to get barbequed.

I must be missing all of the GOP members who aren't beat up by the media.  Hell, McCain was shocked, SHOCKED, when the same media that adored him for years turned on him during the 2008 election to the point they were accusing him of having affairs.   The amazing thing is that McCain didn't learn his lesson at that point, and is once again trying to be the "Maverick".

NOBODY is going to save any GOP leader from being attacked by the MSM.  How do you fight back?  If the media won't cover you fighting back, it never happened in the minds of the Zombie Voters in this country.
