Ezra Klein, Washington Post staff writer, brings up a very troubling question:
“What happens when one of the two major parties does not see a political upside in solving problems and has the power to keep those problems from being solved?”
I think we are in the midst of finding out.
The Republicans believe that their pathway back to power lies in letting the country go to hell (perfect example here). They believe that we will not notice them doing this and that when the country goes to hell we will all go running to them to rescue us. The question now becomes: Are we really that stupid? I fear that we may be.
