Yup, we're run by a bunch of petulant children.
The President is about to make an appearance in the White House briefing room to address the latest developments in the debt talks. Watch live.
Meanwhile, Speaker John Boehner has announced he is breaking off negotiations with the President on a grand bargain to raise the debt ceiling and cut spending and increase revenue. Here's Boehner's letter to his members.
John Boehner talks about "Washington" in the letter to his members. John Boehner has been in office since 1991. You can't get more "Washington" than that. The truth is he can't get the zealots who helped him become Speaker in line to do something as reasonable as NOT completely ruining our economy. They've already done enough to extensively damage it, apparently they want to beat it to a pulp.
It's sickening how the whole talk of "tightening belts" yadda yadda yadda is coming from children wearing men's suits. The GOP is no longer a party, it's a group of ideological sociopaths. Extreme.
