Shorter Mitch McConnell: "Congress Is Not Made Up of Responsible Adults."

MdConnell's plan is to give the President the power to raise the debt ceiling on his own without congressional approval.

So then the Republicans could scream like raped chickens every time the President raises the debt ceiling while, at the same time, avoiding any responsibility for the process.

That's pretty damn cowardly of him. But it's worth remembering that is the GOP mantra, "ideology uber alles". If these current clowns were running the Congress in the fall of 2008, the banking system would have collapsed.

Meanwile, the real masters of the GOP, the business community, are starting to tell them to shut the fuck up, start acting like grown-ups and get to work getting out of this crisis of their own making.

I don't know how the Republicans walk this one back.

The adjective "chickenshit" suits McConnell's behavior to a 't'....

If the ceiling doesn't get raised, and the government has to choose which bills to pay and which to let slide, is there any check at all on the President's power to do the choosing?

Could Obama decide, with no fear of being overruled, that no Medicare dollars will go to any firm in Kentucky?
