Yeah, we need to get something for our acquiescence.

First, I’m for having this fight on the CR, not on the debt ceiling*, but the principle remains the same.  Pass a CR with everything but …. [fill in the blank here].  It could be the biofuels standard, or Obamacare, or any number of other things.

Maybe pass a whole bunch of different bills, each extracting a different pound of flesh.  And if the government should shut down, Republicans can say, “Hey, we passed 4 different bills to fund the government. Looks like Harry & Barry are the ones holding things up here.”


* – (I think the debt ceiling issue is much more dangerous for us than the CR.  If you think shutting down the government through the CR is bad, you didn’t have the stomach for having the fight on the debt ceiling.  Similarly, I think we’ll lose a lot more of our own guys on the debt ceiling than we would on the CR, giving us a potential to hold stronger in negotiations.  You know, should anybody on Capitol Hill discover where there testicles are located.)

    I’m only for that on Syria/Obamacare. He’s going to bpmb anyway.

    I just hope he doesn’t send in the Mogadishu Battalion/Red Shirts too.
