  •  We are going to default. (3+ / 0-)

    Everyone is underestimating just how crazy the House GOP is.  There is going to be a default because they want one.  With all their collective messianic fervor (and yes... they have somehow brought biblical elements into this), they are completely enamored with the concept of bringing catastrophic change to a society they feel has lost its way.

    I think Reid will have to go nuclear to get anything passed in the Senate and, even if he doesn't, anything from the Senate is dead on arrival in the House.  The House GOP  has nothing to lose.  Crazy with nothing to lose is a horribly dangerous combination.
