  •  Go ahead and do it. It's time to get it over with. (8+ / 0-)

    I'm effing sick of these aholes threats, it's time for them to do their worst, instead of us living in fear and allowing all the incremental 'concessions' because sensible people think the next little compromise will be enough to get them to act rationally. Yank the effing band aid off and let everyone see the truth.

      Call their bluff.  If they do it, it will destroy Republicans for a long time.   If they back down, no one will listen to them in the future.

      •  I actually think this is long term (0+ / 0-)

        strategy- keep offering to work with them until enough of the populace starts to get what's really going on, then give them enough rope to hang themselves.  The TP House hasn't yet had their come to Jesus meeting with the real owners of the GOP.  The sequester is starting to hurt the overall economy, a debt ceiling crisis will cost the wealthy.  I think they know another GOP created world economic disaster could shift things in ways that will genuinely interfere with accumulation of obscene wealth.  They'll not only fold, they'll fold in a different public arena.  They'll pay for their games this time.  It takes a hell of a long time to change public perceptions and Obama knows this.  He knows the bully pulpit is only effective if the public is listening.  

        I'm not looking for a love that will lift me up and carry me away. A love that will stroll alongside and make a few amusing comments will suffice.
