  •  I am forced to conclude that wrecking the economy (4+ / 0-)

    through default, higher international interest, and spiralling job loss, seems to them like a GOOD idea.  

    "Rational" all depends on what your goals are.  To them, it's worth it to burn down the country in the name of making Obama look bad.

    •  There is a certain subset of the Right (3+ / 0-)

      That is definitely in favor a default.   Some of them think it will force the country to trim and prioritize it's spending (i.e. Spend Only On Things Republicans Like), and some in the more loony religious extremist wing think that this will help usher in the endtimes.  Still others, I think are just generally enraged and want to punish the country for electing Obama twice.
