Cornyn Kicks the Can, Sprays You With FooFoo Dust

As a substitute for (R) manhood in the House and Senate, Cornyn will "demand" that President PixieDust work at moving a 'balanced budget amendment' through Congress.

If Obama does that, the Pubbies will raise the debt ceiling.

Of course, even assuming that the BBA gets through Congress by June of this year, there's another step: 37 States must ratify it, too.

That might take a while--like 2 or 3 years.

Cornyn's move is also called "spraying the foofoo dust." Or in more earthy language, he's pissing on your back and telling you it's raining.

So far, neither the House nor Senate Republicans have shown five percent of the cojones of Scott Walker, Chris Christie, John Kasich, or Mitch Daniels. They blathered about a $100Bn "cut", and have not yet delivered $10Bn of it. When they feel the heat, they attack the electorate that put them into office with faintly-disguised "bitter and stupid clinger" ad hominems (see Rep. Duffy, stage-struck NPR bootlicker, e.g.)

Meantime, President PixieDust puts forth a budget which will bankrupt the US, spending 25%++ of GDP by 2014. And that's the low-end estimate; unemployment is not expected to return to 5-6% until 2016. So where will tax revenues come from?

Nice try, Senator. But it's no substitute for manhood.
