The President is a big meanie who said harsh things about us and hurt our feelings. He should feel bad and we're not going to let him play with our toys. And math and stuff.
Why is it that the Republicans in Congress seem less mature than the average grade school child? It isn't as if they're all young and the group is filled with members of a generation who feel entitled to everything and anything they want. They are, on average, old white guys, for lack of a better term. This reversion to infantilism since 2010 is deeply mystifying, as they certainly know that government spending is lower than it has been in decades, ditto for taxes, and our real issue in this country is one of revenue. It's a strange choice of delusion to accept as fact things so far removed from reality, and a strange choice for the media to (for the most part) ignore the dysfunction that permeates the Hill in their quest to ensure they're "being balanced".
