Republican Debt-Ceiling Irresponsibility

In the Daily Dish, Andrew Sullivan has an excellent piece entitled America's Cold Civil War which excoriates the Republicans for their reprehensible behavior in the debt-ceiling wars.
Boehner and McConnell have one goal and it is has nothing to do with the economy. It is destroying this president and this presidency. They are clearly calculating that the economic devastation their vandalism could create will so hurt the economy that it could bring them back to power through the wreckage. And they will use every smear, every lie, every canard possible to advance this goal. The propaganda channel dreamt of by Roger Ailes in the Nixon era will continue to pump poison into the body politic, until they defeat the man whose legitimacy as president they have never truly accepted.
