Like an abusive spouse, the Tea Party professes–loudly–to love America whilst jovially pummeling it repeatedly, allowing it to bleed on the carpet whimpering…all while screaming “‘LOOK WHAT YOU MADE ME DO!‘ I love you so much–why do you make me hurt you?” Any message they might have, though, is lost in the din of their relentless blows.
Insane Louie Gohmert (R-TX), interviewed by a reporter from The Young Turks at the Value Voters Summit, doesn’t know if he would support a debt ceiling deal, but he sure knows who is to blame!
Gohmert responded to the reporter’s question about his intent to support a debt ceiling deal.
“That just depends on what it is. The word ‘DEAL’ concerns me…if it’s good for America…”
In other words, Gohmert feels that he and his TEArrorist cell must be given something that they want, before any willingness to release the hostage will be evident.
Realizing that he might be asked to elaborate on his response, Gohmert attempted to slink away, but the reporter pressed on, asking if Gohmert would allow the United States to default on its debt. Gohmert, rather than providing an actual answer, attempted to shirk the blame onto Obama:
“No, that would be an impeachable offense by the President.”
That about sums up then Teahadist mentality: We’re going to hold the gun. We’re going to threaten to pull the trigger. We’re going to risk doing untold damage to our nation if you don’t rip affordable healthcare away from Americans…but if you don’t give in to our unreasonable demands...it’s your fault, President Obama.
