GOP sinking on a ship of timidity, squandering historic win

Call it the mysterious case of the Incredible Shrinking GOP.

Barely one month ago, the party sailed to victory in one of the biggest rout election waves of the past century. They ran the board and took control of the U.S. Senate. They grew to historic levels in the U.S. House. The Democratic Party was left in tatters in state, local and governor races across the country.

But today, just a few weeks later, before GOPers even take hold of their new reins of power, the party is crying poverty. They are stricken with paralysis. House Speaker John A. Boehner, known for his weeping, begs powerlessness…

…In their cowering timidity, Republicans wring their hands in fear over the great danger of defunding Mr. Obama’s insane executive amnesty election racket. If they approve a budget that defunds amnesty, their small thinking goes, Mr. Obama will veto the spending bill, thereby shutting the government down. Then, somehow, Republicans will get blamed for shutting down the government.

I mean, seriously? What kind of traumatized headcase thinking is this?…
