Tea Party activists are cheering the rejection of Boehner’s Plan B:
“I want conservatives to stay strong,” says Christine Morabito, president of the Greater Boston Tea Party. “Sometimes things have to get a lot worse before they get better.”
Thus, the Party of No becomes the Party of Making Things Worse. Boehner has become an object of sympathy, not admiration. Obama has his highest approval ratings since bin Laden was killed. Things will get better, but not in the way Morabito thinks.
