Teabagger Narrative is: The Senate Sold Us Out

From the lips of Cruz... no doubt it will bounce around RW talk radio in the coming days.

Great news for Dems... could mean lots of Republican Senators and Sen. candidates get some heavy primary opposition from the Teahadists...

=Dems maintain control in the Senate (if it was ever realistically in doubt)

5. Right, they're organized, they're funded, doesn't matter that they're nuts

and the Koch boys have so much money they don't mind throwing millions down the extremist rathole. They'll never miss it and they know it.

6. Tea Freak Ringleader admits to what we all suspected/knew

It might be hard to believe that anyone would admit to such a thing, but Wednesday morning on Fox News, that's exactly what Heritage Action CEO Michael Needham did. He started out by explaining that Republicans had shut down the government because they don't want to "allow" Obamacare to "go forward" because they believe it must be stopped "before January 1"

9. "Stabbed in the back" History repeats itself.

 


Get the masses to believe you are winning, and when you lose blame it on someone betraying you.


Who didn't see this coming?

11. I'd say the Teabagger narrative is even simpler than that, no matter who is talking:

"It's never our fault!"

12. No party won, no party lost. The 99% lost big time.

 

The Democrats, the Repuplicans, the Tea party...all various flavors of one party: The Beltway Party.

The only solution I can propose is term limits. Four years for the House, four years for the Senate, six years for President. And one can only serve once in a lifetime.

Let's get ordinary citizens back into the governing process.

13. Oh, please. Now they can't even decide on a narrative?

 

It was the media just a few hours ago. Now it's the Senate? What's next? Sunspots?

14. That's what Cruz said on the floor of the Senate...

that if the Republicans in the Senate had stood behind the House Republicans, it would have been a different story.

So, who are the Tea Baggers going to blame??

Yep.
