Boehner says he thinks we're going over the cliff. Know what? I think that would be an only halfway satisfying outcome. What would be even better is pushing this country into the brink of default. Lets go ahead and do that too Mr. Speaker.

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?

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.

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.

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.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
