The only thing that mollifies that crowd is defeating a president they deem illegitimate. That's how a Heritage Foundation idea backed by Newt Gingrich and first implemented by a Republican governor becomes the second coming of Stalin. There's no nuance or logic or strategy or anything even resembling sanity. It's HULK SMASH over and over again. Like zombies, their hunger is insatiable. So spending levels? They don't give a crap. They need something new to smash. Or a new brain to eat. Pick your favorite metaphor.
