Lefties, and Commies and Trolls, Oh MY!
The fear mongering by the left and their bloggers has been kicked into overdrive concerning the lack of budget.  Since the policy stakes of this particular drama are so low, we can only assume this showdown is about Democrats and Republicans proving their relative political manhood.


I think that Nick Gillespie of Reason Magazine hit the nail on the head:

"President Barack Obama, along with most of his Democratic colleagues, are bellyaching that John Brown No Compromise Republidouches are gonna shut the government down by not compromisin' already even though they got everything they wanted, including trims variously valued at effectively 0.00 percent of this year's federal spending.

... the Dems oughta face facts. The only reason that they are in a pickle is because they utterly failed to pass a fricking budget last year even though they controlled the White House, the Senate, and the House of Representatives. There's no way around it, fellers: You stunk up the joint worse... This marks the only time since current budget-process rules were adopted in 1974 that a budget didn't get done. Nice going, Dems. Regardless of who voters end up blaming this time around, in your heart, you know you suck."

In fact, the "Draconian" cuts that the Left is claiming are proposed by the Republicans merely take us back to 2008-ish levels of spending. If it was good enough for the Democrats in 2008 (and people were not being thrown into the street with their can of dog food and a can opener), it should be good enough now.  Hey, to paraphrase Obama,

"Democrats have driven the economy into a ditch and then stood by and criticized while Republicans are trying to pull it out.... We don't mind the Democrats  joining us. They can come for the ride, but they gotta sit in back."
