Michael Tomasky takes note of the elephant in the room, rigging the economy with dynamite.
I started looking for a great block quote, but I’d just have to steal the entire thing. Every word is worth reading. In short, there’s just too much evidence that anything that’s good for the economy is good for Obama, so even if it used to be a Republican idea, they’re against it now. Please, please just read it.
Sound familiar? Yes, of course, that was the same drill for the Affordable Care Act, which was modeled on Republican counter-proposals to the Democrat’s ideas of the nineties. As Tomasky notes, when Mitch McConnell stepped into the role of House Speaker, he broadcast his complete agenda entirely, and it wasn’t about jobs or the deficit, it was to make sure Obama was a one-term president. Given that a vision so bankrupt and obvious isn’t likely to succeed, voters have to wonder, what the hell was it all for?
