Mistaking Obama for a Republican

Grover Norquist (R-no) threatens massive resistance, not idly but with huge projection of his own wingnut authoritarianism:

NORQUIST: We got lots of things Obama claims to be for, and we will make — we, the Republicans in the House and Senate — will make him actually make those spending restraints, in order to get the continuing resolution out [for] a week, two weeks, a month. Obama will be on a very short leash, fiscally speaking, over the next four years. He’s not gonna have any fun at all. He may decide to go blow up small countries he can’t pronounce because it won’t be any fun to be here, because he won’t be able to spend the kind of cash he was hoping to.
This is the radicalism of the right. Norquist has a lot of company in the obstructionist caucus. They're willing to hold America hostage for whatever they want.

I like that...."hold America hostage." Only a far left communist like you would take issue with those that want to spend ONLY what revenue is actually collected.

Seriously, you're deranged.

You imagine that a House of Representatives with a Republican majority elected with a minority of votes should get its way. You think that fucking the economy by failing to pass a debt ceiling increase is perfectly reasonable. You think - come to think of it, you don't think. You're a complete moron.

The Republican Party is responsible for the incredible shortfall we face, yet you persist in blaming the only party that's fiscally responsible - the Democrats.
