Advice for Boehner:
Keep your mouth shut for a full week until after Christmas.
After that, state, “The House has passed a budget and it is over at the Senate. We will pass the Mack Penny Plan which will balance the budget in 8 years or less. We will then adjourn until the White House and the Senate pass a budget, and we WILL NOT raise the debt ceiling.”
After that, at every question and every opportunity, state the above. If the Dinosaur Media and their party, the Democrats, say to any variation of “You are willing to shut down the government and let old people and children die.”, answer, “We have passed a serious budget. It is the WH and Harry Reid who are letting them die.” “for two years?” “YES- it is past time to save our country from bankrupcy.” Anything that tempts any different answers, get off the podium and off the stage.
Long about February, the dogs will come crawling back to the House.
Sad... this is what ought to have occurred last summer and before.
