This latest farce in D.C. would be laughable if it didn’t come on the heels of the worst economic downturn in our lifetimes. Seriously, who says: “Don’t call my bluff” with a straight face? Did anyone in that room giggle after the President said it?
To be fair, the President was far from the only joke in the room. The Republican “leadership” have been nothing more than a sideshow. They might as well emerge from their daily meetings with cream pies and seltzer bottles.
