With all the Republican elitist consternation and wind-baggery about the liberty-minded wing of the party trying to defund Obamacare, you’d be hard-pressed to know who’s playing for which team these days. Gloria Borger told Anderson Cooper on Thursday that she talked to a “senior Republican” who said Republican leaders were more angry with the defunders than with Obama.

More angry with Ted Cruz and Mike Lee than with President Obama who is tanking our economy and steering our foreign policy ship into dystopian, post-superpower waters? If true, the comment is very instructional about the lack of contrast between the GOP establishment and the Democrats.

“Republicans will get blamed for a government shut down,” they say or, “We’ll lose the Independent vote,” as Karl Rove belly ached in the Wall Street Journal (with the lofty poll conducted by his SuperPAC to prove it). Former McCain advisor Ana Navarro huffed, “I think of it as very destructive and unseemly. Who wants to join a dysfunctional family? So I see why independents would be antagonize by watching this spectacle.” As if anyone from the losing McCain campaign should be advising the GOP about winning elections? Nevertheless, the McCain/Romney/Bush wing of the party has abandoned the fight against Obamacare and has instead taken up arms against conservative Republicans.

Rush Limbaugh likes to say, “Liberals always tell you which conservatives they fear the most.” The same is true for Republican establishment moderates — and these days they’re all downing handfuls of antacids and scheduling extra therapy sessions at the thought they might have to cede power to the likes of Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, Rand Paul, and others in the “Wacko Bird” wing of the party.

The late Andrew Breitbart said in his memorable CPAC speech in 2012,

“Everything has changed. Everything has changed in the last few years. Conservatives used to take it and we’re not taking it anymore.”

Andrew did not die in vain. His creation lives on after him. His lessons are being learned and taken to heart.

What we're seeing here is a snowball effect. This IS going to happen. Obama and his minions sound more shrill and desperate by the hour. I'm betting that more and more jelly-spined Pubbies will sign on as soon as they realize which way the wind is blowing. Democrats are almost never faced with bare-knuckled fight. Things always go their way. Suddenly the old paradigm is changing and they are making fudge in their skivvies. Expect the Immovable Object to start crumbling.

This has everything to do with Syria. The Dems on the Hill may sing from Barry's sheet music and the MSM frantically try to spin it but everyone who's anyone knows exactly what really happened. Obama tried to make them fall on their swords for his greater glory. They balked and, desperate for a way out of the corner he had painted himself into, he bent over and squealed for Putin. They have NO confidence in his leadership. They KNOW he has nothing but contempt for them and now--in the middle of all that barely-concealed demoralization--cometh Ted Cruz and his two-fisted challenge. I just heard Cruz re-iterate his strategy on Sean's show and it sounded simple and direct enough as explained by someone who was NOT trying to confuse and obfuscate the issue.

It WILL work, the Dems are going to have to come out into the light and vote down a continuing resolution that funds everything BUT Obamacare and bet their re-elections on the MSM being able to manipulate us yet again. And, if they do that, Cruz and the gang will keep sending smaller bills, one after another, after another, to fund the government piecemeal. The Dems will have to keep voting down, and/or Obama will have to keep vetoing--individual bills to fund our veterans, elderly, food safety, clean water, widows and orphans, puppies...and so on and on indefinitely.

Cruz knows what he's doing and it's going to work.

Buckle your seatbelts folks. And fire up the popcorn.
