  •  Boehner's Waterloo playing out (8+ / 0-)

    Is what we're seeing here the climax of the GOP's intransigence? The fiscal cliff is their experiment, and they hypothesize that they can make Obama look bad by forcing a recession and, perhaps, a default on the US debt (though it's been suggested that Obama has a legal executive power to surpass the debt ceiling kabuki still yet.)

    Yes, what Boehner is doing is deep-seated anti-Americanism and unpatriotic. It's misanthropic. It's a whole cauldron of horrible steaming shit that Boehner is quite curious to find out what should become of it all.

    But I sense from all this that it's really a Hail Mary pitch by Boehner. Once this episode backfires, as it predictably should (although the GOP fanatics are probably using "unskewed" polls to guage just how shittily their "plan" is being received right now), watch the GOP get absolutely leveled. If even Republican voters are getting more than agitated by Boehner, and his obsequious toeing-the-line along the incumbent Tea Party House, the real political drama is yet to begin.

    I, personally, welcome their hatred. I think Obama is welcoming it as well.
