“What?”, you say. Has His Imperial Maliciousness been smoking something he shouldn’t have?
Au contraire. As an introduction, we’re sure that you’re aware that Pat Toomey (RINO squish – PA) had been trying to capitulate to the Marxists on the StuporCommittee by giving them some tax hikes. It didn’t get a lot of press, but enough that we at least heard of it. Thankfully, the NSDWP didn’t think it went far enough (nothing short of people having to pay the government for the privilege of holding down a job ever will), so nothing came of it.
What we didn’t know was the extent of the proposed RINO back stab, or we’d have been a great deal less phlegmatic about it.
90% of the economy-crushing tax hikes that the NSDWP wanted in the middle of a depression? Really, now? Because that sure as Hades doesn’t seem a lot like the platform that you RINO bastards rode to DC on in 2010. Coupled with non-enforceable “cuts” that are not “cuts” to begin with, but rather slight decreases in the rate of spending growth and, furthermore, will never, ever, ever, ever, ever materialize in the pig sty of corruption, thievery and greed that is DC.
That “deal” makes Weepy Boner’s betrayal look like the resounding victory that beltway pundits always wanted us to believe it was.
But nothing’s so bad that nothing good can come of it. By turning down that betrayal of everything sane and conservative, the NSDWP blew it big time.
So wedded are they to running against a mythical “do-nothing” Republican House in 2012 that they utterly failed to notice the thermonuclear device of a political clusterfuck that the RINOs had just handed them.
Can any of you imagine how lethargic and dispirited the conservative showing at the polls in 2012 would be if the NSDWP had had brains and signed the deal, only to go on to flood the zone in 2012 with how the GOP took less than a year to utterly betray everything they ran on in 2010?
“Read my lips: No new taxes.” Does that ring a bell? Yeah, didn’t work out so well for a certain Republican incumbent who fell, once again, for the NSDWP “we’ll gladly give you spending cuts next year for massive tax hikes today” parlor trick, did it?
So yeah, the collapse of the StuporCommittee was really the best thing that could have happened and, furthermore, it is pretty clear to us that there is a LOT more housecleaning that needs to be done in the GOP next year.
