Politico Hack: ‘Shutting down government is just another gun held to the head of the president’

Translation: The GOP wants Obama dead. This is the fevered mind of a political hack masquerading as an “opinion” journalist.

We live in a time when outright buffoonery passes for statesmanship. We live in a time when a 21-hour non-filibuster filibuster by Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) leads not to general hilarity but serious consideration of how it will help Cruz run for president in 2016.

Nor can the tragicomedy even be questioned. When a reporter asked Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) on Saturday what he would do if his efforts to defund Obamacare should fail, Issa stuck his nose into the reporter’s face and shrilled, “How dare you presume a failure? How dare you? How dare you? How dare you?”

How dare us. Our leaders must not be questioned! They are beyond question. And, in some cases, beyond hope.

Shutting down the government will not shut down Obamacare. Shutting down government is just another gun held to the head of the president, another threat by people who hate the fact that he is president.

Forget about going over the fiscal cliff and stopping the ObamaCare trainwreck. It’s all about how much Republicans hate Obama, or something. Really, can this buffoon be any lazier intellectually?

    This fight is entirely in our control. Unless Republicans ‘cross’ the isle and return to the traditional ‘tax collector for the welfare state’ role Obamacare is done. And has been done since Nov 2010, the Party has been refusing to accept the math and hoping to bluster and bluff one weaker links into caving to their narrative.

    If the weak links weren’t our leadership I’d have great confidence… alas.

    To be able to truly hate an opponent you need a certain minimal level of respect for your opponent. O’bama fails to qualify. Other than his ability to win elections there is no there there. His skills, ability, knowledge and intellect couldn’t fill a mouses codpiece.
