No Winners in Debt Ceiling Fight

Matthew Dowd: "The best-case scenario for these politicians is not that somebody will 'win,' but only that victory can be defined as losing less than someone else. So with no winners in any of this, an increasingly frustrated and anxious public will turn further away from the federal government and our leaders in Washington as a place to find answers. The public has sent wake-up alarm after wake-up alarm to politicians, and many of those politicians keep hitting the snooze button and think they can spin their way out of this."

"The voters won't forget and won't reward any of these politicians no matter what happens. And come the 2012 elections get ready for a reaction, or to paraphrase Doc Holliday from the movie Tombstone, make no mistake, it's not revenge they're after, it's a reckoning."
