The title says it all

July 24, 2011

They tell you not to judge a book by its cover, but sometimes you can use your high school education to deduce all you need from the title itself. So it is with Speaker Boehner’s current approach to the debt ceiling.

Not his career approach, his current approach. Boehner did, after all, raise the debt ceiling seven times during his last term as Speaker of the House, when Congress approved tax cuts that have cost us almost $2 trillion in revenue while writing blank checks to the DoD and defense contractors.

Boehner’s answer to this crisis is such a book: “Two-Step Approach to Hold President Obama Accountable.”

This “plan” makes very similar cuts to the plan Harry Reid put forth, the difference is that one force us would relive this entire hissy fit again in six months (how conveniently timed) and one at least waits until 2013. Using that high school education, one can only deduce that Boehner’s sole goal is to discredit President Obama. Like he has for much of his career, he will do this ignoring all other costs.
