Taxation and the moral compass of America, is what this shit has been
about all along. It really is existential stuff for two very disparate
world views that have always existed in this country. But now the
republicans are so bereft of sane leadership, they are putting guns to
the head of the country and world, and Obama has now responded the only
way he could as a viable president.

It is cold warfare, fought by proxy with economics, and people are
going to get hurt and some may die. There is no other honorable or
presidential way for Obama to respond to this kind of shit. One side of
the country has set the rules of engagement to the lowest denominator
and you either match them at that, or throw in the towel.

Both sides don’t do it, but democrats won’t roll over either,
hopefully, and that is willfully confused with equal culpability for the
sake of continuing drama. This is a republican caused crisis, and our
press is too busy rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic for the
next clown show we call the news cycle, to notice the GOP steering us
all toward the nearest ice berg.
