Or, to put it in more proper terms, the House GOP offers unconditional surrender in exchange for a slowdown in the rate of increased deficit spending.
Even better, try this one: the House GOP offers surrender in exchange for fig leaf we can all see their shriveled junk right through.
If — and there’s some people who are saying that the AP sources are wrong on this, so let’s take it w/ a grain of salt for now — but if the GOP folds and takes the Ryan route, where nothing is done with respect to ObamaCare, and the GOP is looking for a way to claim victory while telling us they helped avoid a “default,” they are simply done as a Party.
Here’s the massive coginitive disconnect between the Gentry GOP’s view of the world, and my own:
The Gentry GOP believes that by leaving Obamacare in place and then running endlessly against it, they can achieve great victories and a restoration of their powers.
I think that by pursuing this strategy they will bring the utter destruction of their party and their powers.
We’ll see who is right, though, won’t we?
