Now that de-funding Obamacare and destroying the credit worthiness of the United States have faded as the most important things EVER!, continuing to hobble the economy through austerity and perpetual sequestration is the thing that is going to give Boehner his Boner back. (If the Democrats go along with it.)
And let’s face it – they will. I’m afraid that the day to day economy means little to the millionaires who represent Delaware in DC; Carney, Coons an Carper. If it did – this ongoing anti-growth bullshit would be regarded as outrageous, and not an awesome product of super-duper warm and cuddly bipartisanship.
I don’t know though. Perhaps it is too early for me to throw the towel in on Coons and Carney. Maybe – in-spite of a track record that shows they are keen to be the next great bipartisan millionaire congressmen from Delaware they will show a glimmer of civic mindedness when push comes to shove. Maybe they will try to rewrite what it means to be bipartisan, to mean something a little less wingnutty? Am I hopeful? I’m a liberal, what else do I have?
