  •  Correct, And Obama Knows This, And Remember (14+ / 0-)

    The GoP of today is MUCH more unpopular than it was then AND they tried this already and got blamed the first time and then got spanked in the election.

    And now they are considering trying it AGAIN?

    Obama will crush them. He will ignore them and take it over their heads to the people and EDUCATE the public about what's going on.

    Congressional Repubs will be lucky if they are not literally tarred an feathered by the time it's over.

    You want bully pulpit? It's about to happen big time.

      Every brain cell in my skull tells me you're right, you should be right...

      ...but then Boehner opens his mouth or Norquist opens his mouth and I think, "They really still believe that they're in charge."

      "Perception is reality" has worked for them for a long, long time.  To the detriment of America.

      Let's see if they've played that card once too often.

      •  The Fact That Norquist Is Out There Running His (10+ / 0-)

        Mouth off tells you everything you need to know about how desperate their situation is.

        Norquist should be lurking in shadows, whispering in years and staying under the radar, like a smart bag man should be doing.

        That he feels it's necessary for him to be out there loudly and publically insulting the President means he's desperate, otherwise he'd be using more quiet forms of leverage.  He no longer has anything except his big mouth. "Yap yap yap! Look at me! I'm still relevant!"

    •  Not only that (7+ / 0-)

      the states where they hold big majorities totally HATE them, because they're not doing what they were elected to do, but doing what their rich masters want them to do.

      And all those rich bastards want screws the people, and the people KNOW IT.

      I think there are going to be some SERIOUS changes in state govt in the next election, and the GOP is not going to be happy about it.
