Off message!

But only for a brief moment:

Since there is no George W. Bush Economic Miracle to point to it’s taken as a matter of pure faith or natural law that nudging tax rates back to where they were during the Clinton boom years will result in disaster. There will be a disaster but it will be political and not fiscal. The travesty that they fear will take place is a reduced deficit which will kick the ladder out from under the deficit peacocks. When budget numbers begin to improve they will then be left with the unsavory task of telling voters that it’s in their best interest to do what Goldman Sachs says or else run the risk of their fury and retribution. Republicans are good at believing their own bullshit but I don’t think even the most foolish Tea Partier is going to buy into that rationale.
