Obama and Reid are going to take the country to ‘default’ because they are mindless liberal zealots who arrogantly believe they are of the chosen few on Earth who can dictate to everyone what is ‘right’. They will take us all through hell to get their way.
Over at Powerline they are having a contest which is producing some amazing media pieces distilling down the issues we face as a nation right now. One of them – The Doorbell – encapsulates the Obama-Reid debt plan perfectly:
This is the path we are on, and the path Obama and Reid want us to accelerate upon. This is why there is a People’s Insurgency in the House. And this is why there will be no agreed to debt ceiling resolution until the political pain on the Democrats is so severe they give up their arrogant and ignorant plans. The battle is for the future of our children. The stakes are more than high enough to face this impasse with steadfast resolve and force the Dems into capitulation.
This is no longer about compromise. It is all about winning – as is the case when it comes down to survival.
Update: Boehner says it all today, as he calls on Obama-Reid to stop posturing.
At moments like this, the arrogance of Washington is most evident not in its actions, but in its inaction.
In the face of a debt explosion that threatens the future of our country, the Senate has not passed a budget in more than 800 days. The House passed a historic one in April.
In the face of a government shutdown this past spring, the Senate produced no solution and initiated no bill. The House did.
And to date, faced with the possibility of a national default that could destabilize our already shaky economy, the Senate has sent the House nothing, while the new majority in the House has acted twice.
Sadly for all of us, Obama and Reid are so arrogant they will never heed the calls for sanity until the pressure raises well above the current levels. Hang on, the ride will be getting very bumpy from here on out.
