Thoughts on the Eve of the Latest GOP-Manufactured, Unnecessary Crisis


    President Obama says: I won’t negotiate over the debt ceiling.

    John Boehner says: Won’t negotiate? That’s not how things work.

    I say: No negotiation with terrorist blackmailers is long-established American policy.


    These Republicans are the same guys who have been banging the drum about how bad for the U.S. Economy “Uncertainty” is.

    Do they give out awards for most blatant hypocrisy?


    People now see the crazy destructiveness, but something is strikingly still missing.

    Why don’t our national commentators spend more time on questions like:

    “How did it come to pass that one of our two major political parties has become this monstrosity?”

    Or: “How did the Republican Party break so bad?”
