Watching the debate over Obama's stimulus plan unfold, I'm struck by just how fucking insane Republicans are. Now I've know for quite some time that those on the right were crazy but lately they've just gone off the deep end and taken it all to a whole new level, a level I didn't think was possible. In their quest to deny Obama and the Democrats a chance at somehow saving the US economy, the Republicans are risking being permanently reduced to nothing more than a very minor party based in a few southern states. That being said, Obama can't escape all of the blame for this fiasco. His insistence on getting bipartisan support for the stimulus was a mistake from day one. He won the election, rather easily, and the Dems have big advantages in both houses of Congress, so why he felt the need to give up so much to get so little is beyond me.
They don't negoitiate in good faith, they could give two shits about you or me and as far as they are concerned, the country can burn down before they will approach something so serious with any bit of honesty. They are fucking insane, batshit crazy and need to be treated like they are insane. They got us into this mess, now it's time for them to get the fuck out of the way and let the adults try and fix this fucking mess. So Mith and Boehner and McCain, all I can say to you all is FUCKY YOU and get the FUCK out of the way you fucking idiots.
UPDATE 8:12 PM: I'm watching Obama's press conference and I'm struck by two things. One, it's nice to have a President who can put a sentence together. Watching Bush speak was always so fucking painful. Obama, not so much. The other thing I'm struck by is that Obama is attacking his critics, especially those on the right.
