Chuck Todd: GOP Has Palin, Cruz to ‘Blame’ for Bad ‘Treatment They’re Getting from Democrats,’ Obama (Mediaite)

NBC News Chief White House Correspondent and MSNBC host Chuck Todd reported on Monday that tea party figures like Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin helped scuttle a potential deal to raise the debt ceiling over the weekend when they led World War II veterans to march on the White House. Todd reported that the tea party Republicans are “doing everything they can” to keep the shutdown and debt ceiling standoff “alive.”

“While the non-tea party Republicans are desperately trying to end this standoff, the tea party Republicans are doing everything they can to keep it alive,” Todd said on Monday.
