John Boehner’s lame budget plan would only cut $91.7 billion per year (supposing anything really gets cut), which is like treating a slashed throat with a Band-Aid. But that’s plenty for a Big Government oligarchical collectivist like John McCain, who yet again seizes the opportunity to suck up to the liberal press by knifing conservatives in the back. He saw fit to recite on the Senate floor this from a remarkably nasty piece by his fellow establishmentarian statists at the WSJ:
The usually sensible Club for Growth and Heritage Action, the political arm of the Heritage Foundation, are scoring a vote for the Boehner plan as negative…
But what none of these critics have [sic] is an alternative strategy for achieving anything nearly as fiscally or politically beneficial as Mr. Boehner’s plan. The idea seems to be that if the House GOP refuses to raise the debt ceiling, a default crisis or gradual government shutdown will ensue, and the public will turn en masse against … Barack Obama. The Republican House that failed to raise the debt ceiling would somehow escape all blame. Then Democrats would have no choice but to pass a balanced-budget amendment and reform entitlements, and the tea-party Hobbits could return to Middle Earth having defeated Mordor.
This is the kind of crack political thinking that turned Sharron Angle and Christine O’Donnell into GOP Senate nominees.
Barack Hussein Obama is president of the United States because this snake in the grass was given the Republican nomination, despite being rightfully loathed by the party’s base. How’s that for “crack political thinking”?
Despite being such a weak candidate, if McCain had been half as hard on the Moonbat Messiah as he has always been on fellow Republicans, he would be in the White House right now. The lesson must be learned: drive out all RINOs.
