After the U.S. Economy Implodes
After the price to borrow goes up and the stock market goes down, and the U.S.'s prestige around the world is harmed forever, what will bother me most is how the wackjobs will explain how this all came to be.
They won't look to the 59 Republican members of Congress who have refused to raise the debt ceiling under any circumstances. They surely won't blame the house leadership, who care about nothing other than the super rich. Instead, as always, they will blame a combination of the Muslim socialist we put into the White House, gays and their gay marriage enablers, and everyone else working to create a Jesus-free European utopia.
If the words of President Reagan, 470 CEO's, and all the major credit rating agencies can't make these imbeciles understand what they're risking, nothing will. I'm not thrilled with how President Obama has handled these negotiations, but he's been more than willing to buck the Democratic Party's left wing to get something done. John Boehner has shown that he's unwilling to do anything that might upset the most irrational and erratic people our party has arguably ever produced.
