Is that smoke I see coming out of David Brooks’s ears?
For those who have not heard, David Brooks is supposed to be some genius, but I have always thought is was a guy that can never see the forest for the trees. What ever mental attributes you want to give him, his writing usually involves copious amounts of after-the-fact-whitewashing of Republican stupidity.
BUT, EVEN DAVID BROOKS cannot whitewash reckless tactics Republicans will take to cripple Obama. What they are doing with the debt limit defies even David Brooks’s endless ability to shroud Republican actions in any kind of intellectual cover.
The Republicans will risk the family farm, so to speak, with these debt-limit shenanigans to make things rougher on Obama. These tactics should be exposed for what they are; they are harsh tactics by people (Republican Fanatics) that don’t give a damn about America’s debt rating.
Let’s not forget the debt is mostly republican in origin.
The cult known as the republicans worship at the alter of Ayn Rand and Jesus—-in that order. Paul Ryan doesn’t want to make a deal because how can they lower taxes if they get rid of loopholes?
In other words, how can we makes things bad for Obama and make him a one-termer if we work with him on anything?!
What will the Republican bond downgrading will do to the deficit these Republicans created and now won’t pay for?
Obama say’s he is going to take this to the American people, I hope that is true. About time.
Of course, why would you care about the debt ceiling if nothing will happen if we default?
Apparently this is what Michele Bachmann thinks.
