“Come on, Mr. President,” said the Republican presidential candidate. “You can, by yourself, cut spending, agree to cap the spending and put in place a balanced budget amendment.”
Usual disclaimers apply (it’s early, etc.), but between the debt ceiling hostage taking and the Bachmann surge, it really looks like the panicked Republican establishment has anointed this hothouse flower as their standard bearer. I predict a major wilt as soon as he faces a real debate, especially when dumb shit like this and his eternity of flip-flops are introduced into evidence.
