Of course I’m waiting like everyone else to discover what the President has to say tonight.
But here’s a hint about what’s actually going on:
I met today with a civil servant who was deeply involved in the planning for a government shut-down back when the House GOP threatened not to extend the Continuing Resolution. This far out from D-Day, detailed plans were in place and guidance had been given to the agencies. No such planning is now happening.
Sounds to me as if they have an ace in the hole.
