Wait...you know what? The GOP doesn't need any ocean water to break the fall off the cliff. 86 the cliff. We need to push them right up to the edge of the canyon.
Forgive the silly metaphors, but we should want to jam these guys:
Should the president not get his deal before the end of the year, he might consider jamming John Boehner as well. How?I think it is time to bring this silly business to a head. We can't keep running government like this, from crisis to crisis. It is time to break the Republican Party and fracture it for the rest of President Obama's term. If Boehner gets overthrown and we get someone worse, so be it. We need to either break this party or just go ahead and shut down the government and default. I prefer the former.
By attaching a middle class tax cut to raising the debt ceiling and then ramming it through the Senate. It would be an act of extraordinary moxie and hard as fricking nails negotiating. It would literally turn the entire world against House Republicans.
The President cannot continue to allow these manufactured events to dominate because the opposition is run by crazy people. If they want to default, fine. One way or the other, this madness has to end.
