Mitch McConnell Laughed Out Loud
Don't get me wrong, I have no great love for Mitch McConnell. However, I do like his response to Timmy the Tax Cheat Geithner's proposed "solution" to the fiscal mess using front-loaded tax hikes and some sort of vague, future "cuts." McConnell laughed--a spontaneous, involuntary reaction. Good for him.
Here's a quote from McConnell in an interview with Hugh Hewitt: "The election is over. This is time to be governing. The posturing, the endless campaign, the never-ceasing finger pointing and blaming, you know, I know he's [Obama] upset about it, but he's got a Republican House to deal with, and he's got a non-inconsequential Republican minority in the Senate. He doesn't own this Congress like he did the Congress in 2009 and 2010. He can't get anything he wants. Those days are over."
And in response, Duane Patterson in the HotAir Green Room, said this, and I love this quote: "I am pleased to see that not all Republicans in elected office are willing to cower to a President as though he has a mandate when in fact, no mandate exists. A coalition of unserious people can vote in an unserious leader so that unserious economic proposals are presented, but that certainly does not mean that serious people should abandon, well, seriousness."
