RUSH: Now, what is this? Look at that on Fox. Look at that. Now, don't turn it on, folks. I have a done that for you. You don't need to turn on Fox. It says, "The Republicans are backing away from a government shutdown strategy to defund Obamacare." There never was a government shutdown strategy. What do you mean "Republicans are backing away from a government shutdown strategy to defund Obamacare"? There never was one. All there was was a bunch of idle chitchat about it.
RUSH: I'm watching Fox here as the show starts and they're doing some segment on the Republicans backing away from a government shutdown strategy on defunding Obamacare. I don't know what I missed there, but I don't know about you, did you ever believe the Republicans in the House were ever -- particularly at the leadership level -- were ever considering anything that would shut down the government? It's never been a realistic possibility. And yet here comes the news, another Republican failure. Now they're getting smart. Getting smart.
