Well, the good news is we’ve probably taken intentional sovereign default off the table as a political tactic. It’s a hostage the leadership is not willing to shoot. Of course, the bad news is they have proven their willing to shoot the budget hostage, and that comes up again in about 86 days. Yay for good government, eh? Since the key to tea party tactical politics is perfect purity, an absolute refusal to offer any concessions in order to pass legislation, there will not be a budget agreement, let alone an immigration or tax reform bill.
So this is the way it’s going to be, at LEAST until next November. If enough people recognize that the tea party idiots are exploiting the weaknesses inherent in divided government and give the gavel back to Nancy Pelosi, the threats and repeated crises will end.
I hope that the Teabaggers are clueless enough to keep reminding people that they are hateful idiots, up to election day. Americans have so many ways of numbing themselves, memories fade in a few weeks.
They are nothing if not dependable. When the evidence indicates they should change course, they can be relied upon to disregard the evidence and double down. It is one of their most endearing traits…
Would you hire somebody whose avowed purpose was to destroy your business?
That’s not really a rhetorical question. It’s what the Tea Party claims it wants to do.
Nice tune, btw!
eah, Jim, I’ve always thought that for people who claim gubblemint can’t do anything, let alone do anything right, Republicans sure seem pretty hot to start getting checks from it.
I am living proof the gov can’t do anything right.
