Obama: “We do not have an immediate debt crisis”; Boehner: “What he said”
As it’s all the rage these days, allow me to try my hand at the new “compassionate conservative,” GOP establishment “autopsy” game: first, I hereby re-brand John Boehner “Barack Obama Light” — though not for lack of tanning. Second, I hereby re-brand the GOP House leadership, which on three occasions recently caucused with Democrats against its own majority, and has scrapped the Hastert Rule (which I’ve re-branded the “Colin Powell Rule”), “Republicans for a Democratic Party Agenda.”
It’s the ruling class vs. the rest of us, folks, and the gauntlet has been dropped: the GOP establishment is on the side of big government, and their battle with Democrats is merely one over relative positioning at the revenue spigot.
Whereas their battle against the TEA Party and the conservative base is an existential one — and the one they are far more committed at the moment to fighting.
Any questions, Hobbits?
I didn’t think so. Now. Get your asses in line before Rick Moran has to brandish his fiery quill and write something very very pointed about your subpar intelligence and your presuming to meddle into the complex and nuanced affairs of policy and government for which you have not be adequately groomed, and to which your breeding does not intimate even a remote likelihood of success.
Go on. Scoot! Your betters have work to do.
