On Republicans holding firm politically as the government shutdown continues...

If Republicans would just stop enabling that bullying and intimidation by stopping being afraid of it, there would be a sea change. That's what Cruz is demonstrating, if you ask me, fearlessness, and look at how they're reacting to that. They don't know how to deal with it. They don't know how to deal with people that aren't afraid of 'em. They don't know how to deal with people they can't manipulate or bully into shutting up and going away. There's a lot to learn here, folks – a lot to learn.
