Line of the Day (“The Hands Up Moment” Edition)
“the hands up moment – perhaps the most important single moment in recent GOP politics – when all the candidates declared they would walk away from a debt deal that was 10 – 1 spending cuts to revenue increases. That was when they told us they were an ideological and religious movement, not a party fit for actual government.”—Andrew Sullivan.
The man has a point and it is one that underscores the sad state of the GOP at the moment. If these candidates are to be taken at their words then they are not interested in solving problems nor are they interested in governing, but instead appear to live in a fantasyland where recalcitrance is mistaken for solution to difficult problems (which does smack more of theology than it does actual governance).
