Democratic media steers GOP leaders towards battle with conservatives

Yelling 'SHUTDOWN!'  is the new 'FIRE!' That one little word will bend Boehner and McConnell parallel with the ground. Selective amnesia allows them to discount the historic wave election garnered the very next year!

This tactic is simply more tricks from a Democratic media, but GOP leaders will undoubtedly fall for it yet again. Boehner, McConnell and their lieutenants are preparing to fight against conservatives...to then cower in the shadow of Obama and Democrats! All to avoid Big Media's assured blame.

Is there really any doubt that these guys don't need to be leading anything, much less a political party?
WaPo: House Speaker John A. Boehner (R-Ohio) is bracing for what could be the toughest weeks of his speakership as several dozen conservatives in his party are threatening to topple him unless he is more ferocious with Democrats during the upcoming fiscal showdowns.

That internal Republican feud has increased the chances that Washington, for the second time in two years, could stumble into a shutdown of the federal government.

The speaker’s lieutenants are openly girding for battle with the small but influential bloc of anti-Boehner conservatives, who have signaled that if Boehner cuts any deal that they don’t like with Hill Democrats and President Obama, they could seek to remove him from the speaker’s post. It is a threat that Boehner and his allies are taking seriously.
The Republican leadership has so much more in their way than worrying about the media perception of a government shutdown (of which shuts down every weekend, btw). Their major obstacle is not conservatives; it's themselves in overcoming their now-routine capitulation to wrongheadedness over any remnant of principle.
