Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell moved Tuesday to head off a potentially disastrous U.S. default by offering President Obama new authority to raise the federal debt limit without cutting government spending...That says everything that needs to be said. There's plenty more 'mechanism' to it, but the bottom line is that McConnell has just offered to give Obama unilateral authority to increase the national debt three times, so long as the GOP would be able to cast a meaningless vote saying they didn't like it*.
As Mad Dog Tannen said, what a gutless yellow turd.
But the worst part is not McConnell so much as it is a senate GOP that insists on electing gutless yellow turds like McConnell to leadership roles. Leadership, in this case, meaning "You do what you like and I'll stand on the sidelines and bitch about it."
* Why the hell do we have a legislative branch anyway? Let's just have the President rule by fiat and have Congress pass meaningless resolutions about everything. Oh, wait.
