Priebus Gets It. (R) Boyzzz Don't

We mentioned that Rep. Ryan and some (R) dingleberry from Michigan don't seem to get it.

Ironic that Reince Preibus writes an essay, published today, which shows that HE gets it.

According to Gallup, Americans’ confidence in the economy reached a new low for 2011 last week. A mere 34 percent of Americans said in a recent CBS/Times poll that they approve of the way President Obama is handling the economy; the lowest point since he took office.

...These are times of great fiscal consequence; times that call upon leaders to act with purpose in a reasonable, responsible, reform-minded manner. Americans of all political persuasions are coming to the inescapable conclusion that we simply cannot go on like this. What seems so fundamental in the minds of voters continues to elude many in Washington, namely: money runs out; debts become due; negative credit has negative consequences.

He mentions that Medicare will be banko in 9 years.

...the voters I speak with are acutely aware of the fiscal cliff this country is approaching. That is why they voted in record numbers to elect a Republican House majority with a mandate to put its foot firmly on the brake and rein in Washington’s reckless, wasteful, and out-of-control spending

Gee, Reince. Like reforming, say, MEDICARE? Like ripping ObozoCare from the Federal Register and shredding its remains?

A Wisconsin (R) Congressman, long considered a stalwart conservative, has opined that 'keeping the Federal Government running' is more important--in his view--than taking a principled stand on the magically-vanishing "budget cuts" of a few weeks ago; we can only hope that he begins to smell the reality-salts before the debt-limit vote upcoming.

Reince, you should take your Congressional boys and girly-girls into closed session and deliver the mail.

Use force if necessary.
