TPM: The GOP’s Jig Is Up: They’ll Raise Debt Limit

http://tpmdc.talkingpointsmemo.com/2013/01/gop-de-escalates-debt-limit-fight.php

The jig is up. Republicans are going to increase the debt limit. Probably for free.

And in the end, their change of heart took about two weeks.

Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX), who on January 4 warned that Republicans might force the country past the debt limit, now says “We will raise the debt ceiling. We’re not going to default on our debt.”

9. They are trying out daddy's shoes.

It's just more play time for the GOP. The juvenile temper tantrums will resume in 5 minutes.
