I just opened up Huffington Post to see the following headline:
In typical HuffPo fashion, a series of apocalyptic predictions follow, including a quote from a Republican Congressman, who says that the GOP has found it’s voice and is on the road to victory.
Perhaps this is not all that different than the hyperbolic comments I’ve made myself lately.
Except that actually comprehending that a Republican Congressman really thinks his party is on the up and up is one of the more liberating and hilarious understandings you can give yourself today. To think — 3 minutes in the toilet and their already excited for the revival!
Okay. Give the Republicans everything they want. Give them control of the Senate and the House, give them the Presidency. Let them do what they think is best for the country. It will be great for everyone.
Hold on a second!
Isn’t that what just ended? And haven’t we rather unanimously decided that George W. Bush’s 8 years in office were a monumental failure? If the GOP thinks that their backwards approach to economics is what the country needs, I invite them to continue to provide the same solutions to Americans they have for the past 8 years. In another 8, we’ll be down a worse hole, with 30% unemployment and terrible deflation.
Is that really the world Mitch McConnell wants to be responsible for?
