"Republicans and Tea Party activists have been remarkably on message since the shutdown became a real possibility. Last week, at a rally that was watched for signs of Tea Party fervor, organizers and Republicans assured the crowd that any shutdown would be the Democrats' fault. ... There are some helpful facts behind this. Democrats did not pass a budget in 2010, and this impasse would have been avoided if they had. It's also true that Democrats have blinked on enough spending measures that, as one GOP aide told me, there's a real path to an agreement." (04/06/11)
