Con Job, Ctd.

by Ramesh Ponnuru

Andy: If you can find an example of Senator Corker (or any of your other villains) saying in the past that Republicans could prevail in defunding Obamacare by having a showdown involving a government shutdown, but now calling that idea “moronic” or something similar, I’ll be happy to concede that you’re right that they’ve changed their positions, and possibly even been dishonest. What you’ve shown instead is that some people have favored defunding Obamacare but not favored the shutdown strategy. There are perfectly honorable reasons for people to do that, as you now concede.
