Boehner Says Democrats Would "Win" Government Shutdown

House Speaker John Boehner is warning Republican lawmakers that Democrats would "win" politically if there's a government shutdown "and the GOP would suffer a political catastrophe if the federal government runs out of money at the end of this week," Politico reports.

Said Boehner: "The Democrats think they benefit from a government shutdown. I agree."

4. In my best Tom Hanks imitation...
"There is no WINNING in Government!!"

Yes, I am annoyed at the state of both parties. Yes, I think we are a country run by a twisted system that consistantly has its head stuck up someone's backside. Usually someone very wealthy. Yes, we need genuine liberal leadership to step forward.

But truly, this Republican party is the foulest party of wretched PUNKS...ever. Win win win.

Assholes.

5. As Expected this is all a Game by GOP to get as much as Possible before Accepting on Thurs.
This is been the case for the last 2 years.

They know that Obama caves every time so they are just getting as much as they can before letting the hostage go. Milking the cow.
