The rule or ruin Republicans - daily beast

Progressive label almost never get right. (To be fair, get conservative almost never policy right, which is worse.) What we promote an innovative tax credit for work day and reward to leave welfare? The earned income tax credit or EITC. Wow, is the gripping. Not.

But it seems that this time we got all the branding. Within hours of the announcement, progressives were that standard & poor's U.S. Treasury securities had downgraded all call it tea party-downgrade. I think, it will remain, because, as Henry Kissinger said in another context, it has the additional virtue is true.

It was used to be that even consider a refusal which raise debt ceiling was taboo. Ronald Reagan, in reference to then-Senate majority leader Howard Baker (R - TN), wrote: "the full consequences of default - or even the serious prospect of standard - by the United States are impossible to predict and to look at awesome." "Denigration of the full faith and credit of the United States would substantially on the domestic financial markets and the dollar."

Reagan concerned over "the serious prospect of even standard", because he knew that if a taboo as the subject is addressed the results can the same as if he were usually injured. For generations, there was no serious discussion not to increase the debt ceiling. Sure, politician self-serving statements and occupation showmanship "" voices (such as Senator Barack Obama, as President George W. Bush needed to increase the debt ceiling), but our leaders understood that our full faith and credit had to be sacrosanct.

Thus ended with the acquisition of the tea party. Even though they worship claim to America's founders, many tea party are anything but conservative politicians. Not, save such as the tradition of protecting our guilt. In fact, as asked by layoffs in the wake of his party was radical proposals, House Speaker John Boehner said, "To it."

This is the way with all taboos - whether it is divorce or body penetrate or hear even the idea of Rebecca Black "Friday" - it entertaining it is more likely that you will really do it. Sei's drum.

Leaders such as speaker Boehner, tea party activists, flirted openly with standard CD. Even a veteran of Moneyman such as Mitt Romney, which should have known better, refused to oppose the tea party position. And downgrade came.

Now, counter to the prevailing stereotypes, it is progressive, the proudly wave of the flag and right displayed the America. Whines about "the failure of the leadership of the President of the United States in Washington, D.C." during Romney (glad you clarified that, Mitt.) (For a moment I thought, you were talking about the President of the United States in Baraboo, Wisconsin), the billionaire Democrat Warren Buffett defended our country and mocked announcement that "if anything, it can change my opinion on S & P" S & P, boldly and proudly explains that a rating of "A quadruple" earned the United States.

Against prevailing stereotypes, it is the proud wave of the flag and right displayed the America, progressive.

One hundred fifty-one years before, in his speech at the Cooper Union, Abraham Lincoln, the founder of the Republican party, handles his opponents bitterly: "Your goal, then clearly indicated, is that you be destroyed the Government, if allows you to construct and enforce the Constitution, what you want, in all respects in the dispute between you and us." You rule or ruin in all events. "
