Hypocrisy and Corruption

The so-called “Debt Limit Increase Deal”  is the most dangerous act of hypocrisy and cowardice in recent American political history, and saying so is not hyperbole. A minority of the minority party took the American economy hostage and extorted budget cuts that will destroy the safety net for those of us who can’t afford the multi-million dollar donations to the Republican Party and the Tea Party hostage-takers. A party that took the budget surpluses of the prosperous Clinton years and turned them into deficits of hundreds of billions of dollars through tax-giveaways to the rich and handouts to the military-industrial complex through two unfunded and unnecessary wars now has the gall to demand that programs designed to help the poor and middle class be gutted so that the Republicans’ corporate masters can continue to amass even more wealth. And, then they call it “freedom.” They say they adore the Constitution, except for those parts they find inconvenient, and then create some extra-constitutional body to make decisions they don’t have the courage to make themselves. And, all the while, the right-wing media continues to lie to the country about what is being done and the rest of the media is afraid to call them out.

Keith Olbermann said it quite eloquently Monday night.
