Republicans & Math
Reid savings trumps Boehner plan Politico
No one is saying that House Speaker John Boehner has an easy job. And we’re pleased that he’s holding up well under the stress of his unruly Tea Party caucus. If Boehner cried at this moment, I suspect that the rating agencies would downgrade America’s credit status for real. Crying under pressure is not good for the country.
There is actually a much worse problem among Republicans generally, which is why I now turn the TV to mute when the 25 key-word Republican commentator takes the mic. To have a limited vocabulary and inability to grasp the complexities of business, politics, and economics is bad enough for the country.
