Political strategy

They[Republicans] lost the media battle. There’s definite media bias, but again they shouldn’t have had the fight unless they weren’t willing to raise the debt ceiling under ANY circumstances. If Republicans had dug in, they’d have to reduce spending by about a trillion dollars a year.  Many departments, such as Energy and Education, would have to be eliminated. If they were not willing to do that, they should have just given the Democrats everything they wanted so their fingerprints would be all over it.
