The latest example of the site's drone-like insipidity is this delightful missive, entitled "Is GOP Trying to Sabotage the Economy?" [sic]
Associated Press: "Are Republican lawmakers deliberately stalling the economic recovery to hurt President Barack Obama's re-election chances? Some top Democrats say yes, pointing to GOP stances on the debt limit and other issues that they claim are causing unnecessary economic anxiety and retarding growth."
Regardless of whether the suspicions are right, "there's evidence that unceasing partisan gridlock and the prospect of big tax increases and spending cuts in January are causing some companies to postpone expansions."
Genius. So the greatest deficit spender in world history, whose own budgets have been repudiated by the nail-biting, bipartisan margin of 610 to nothing, and who had super-majorities in Congress for two years, blames the GOP for his epic failures?
• He jammed through the world's biggest "Stimulus" bill, roughly $800 billion that is now built into the baseline budget, because of Democrats' three-year failure to pass a budget.
• Using every political maneuver imaginable, he shoved Obamacare down the American people's throats -- a 2,700 page bill that not one person read before it was voted on.
• In an unsurprising turn of events, he slammed a "Financial Reform" bill into place -- thousands of pages of additional legislation that no one read -- that left the lynchpins of the financial crisis (Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac) unreformed.
• He presided over such egregious deficit spending that the U.S. lost its AAA credit rating for the first time.
• His EPA and Department of the Interior have repeatedly attempted to crush America's energy production: found in contempt of court for its illegal Gulf drilling ban, repudiated in federal court for exceeding its authority by revoking properly issued mining permits and killing the Keystone XL pipeline just for starters.
• He tacitly endorsed illegal immigration by issuing executive orders to implement a de facto DREAM Act and sued states for enforcing federal immigration law.
• Through his National Labor Relations Board, he's repeatedly intimidated large manufacturers like Boeing.
• He's wasted tens of billions on phony "green energy" companies like Solyndra that -- just coincidentally, I'm sure -- never failed to have ties to his campaign's biggest contributors.
Those items are just the tip of the iceberg.
But all of these failures -- Soviet-style, central planning on steroids -- are the Republicans' fault. Or at least Bush's.
With embarrassing drivel like this, I'm guessing Taegan Goddard and his collective commenting crew couldn't harness enough intellectual firepower to spark a stogie.
