House GOP budget hijackers ironically invoke "Let's Roll" ahead of shutdown vote

BTW, does the cinnamon roll thread still exist? ... WASHINGTON— John Boehner has succeeded in rallying House Republicans around a single goal — an accomplishment that has eluded him for months, if not years. The plan that has his conference so excited: passing funding resolution that the Senate and President Obama will assuredly reject, resulting in a government shutdown on Monday. “We are 100 percent unified because we are doing the right things for the right reasons. Everyone said, ‘let’s vote!’ And I said, like on 9/11, ‘Let’s roll!’” said Texas Rep. John Culberson, making a reference to passenger Todd Bremer’s famous statement aboard the hijacked United 93 flight on September 11th. “Ulysses S. Grant used to say, ‘Boys, quit worrying about what Bobby Lee is doing.’ I’m worried about what we’re doing and that’s where the House is today,” Culberson said of the Senate. “We’re going to quit worrying about what those other guys are doing and focus on what we are doing. Which is what Grant did, which ultimately led to the victory of the federal army [in the battle].”
