Default Nunes- GOP 'lemming caucus' has set us on fire & sent us to the Valley of Death

(8:00 min mark) "Now that we've set ourselves on fire and made the jump, We are now in the valley of Death. We decided to go into the valley NOW we have to stay together (or burn up together)."

Pretty clearly shaping up to be Cruz as the GOP candidate in 2016. As Claudius said, "Let all the poisons that lurk in the mud hatch out."

Speaking of "poisons in the mud."

Too bad a guy like Nunes isn't in charge of the House. He seems to be in touch with reality.

That video is actually hilarious. He calls them lemmings and then says he's supporting it and will continue to support it. What sense does that make?

Like he said, he's supporting the party leadership whether he agrees personally or not. He's being the good soldier. Like Clinton once said, "Democrats fall in love. Republicans fall in line."

What's the difference between a lemming and a good soldier in this case?

A lemming calling out other fellow lemmings for being 'really really big fat ugly super lemmings'.

It is a refreshing candid interview. But let's all not forget that the only reason he came forward was that his words where leaked so now he's trying to get in front of it.

They all knew (GOP moderates along with Nunes) this wasn't a smart strategy from the beginning. But they we're all too cowardice to stand up to the tea party bully from the start.

I wonder if this is a tipping point? A bully loses his power once someone in the group steps up and punches back.

Just imagine for one moment if this were a calculated move (or inadvertently turned into one) for the GOP to publicly lay the blame directly at the feet of the the tea party. Thereby saving the face of the GOP brand (for Independents) while still being able to get some concessions for the GOP in some smallish grand bargain. The tea party would have saved face for not backing down (they were ultimately turned on). Obviously the Bully-Primary hammer wouldn't be in affect because it was part of the exit plan.

Something has got to give. An exit strategy will be needed at some point. This would be one way to do it.

I think you're mixing up who the bully and who is punching back here.

Yes, thankfully the democrats are the party of those who "think" on their own. Sure.

The good soldier is an adult.
