The Stupid Party
Having watched this debt ceiling fight play out over the past couple of months, I keep coming back to one inescapable conclusion: we need better generals.
The Washington GOP wants to force another vote on the debt ceiling right before the election. That’s one of the ideas being kicked around in part of this grand deal.
Let’s play this out:
We get to the last week. The Democrats and media say the GOP will destroy the economy and risk our credit rating. Barack Obama gets the debt ceiling increased. He is hailed in the press as able to bring everyone together.
In other words, the chicken GOP too afraid to fight it out in the press will fold like cheap suits and give Barack Obama a victory right before the election. Obama will wind up looking bipartisan.
Yeah, we need better generals. This is stupidity.
