The Debt Kamikazes
Via John Avlon at the Daily Beast: GOP’s Debt Kamikazes
Michele Bachmann believes it’s all a hoax. Tim Pawlenty told an Iowa crowd, “I hope and pray and believe they should not raise the debt ceiling.” Ron Paul based his first presidential ad on a call to not raise the debt ceiling, proclaiming “No Deals.” And Rick Santorum has said that raising the debt ceiling should be avoided until a Balanced Budget Amendment to the Constitution is passed.
The options here are not good. Either the politicians in question really think that this is not big deal or they are blatantly lying for political gain.
Either option, it seems to me, leads one to the conclusion that they are unfit for office.
