And the Theater of the Suicidally Absurd continues as Reid taps Murray, Baucus and Kerry. yes, Kerry, the man who told the media to stop covering Tea Party & who declared Tea Party was responsible for the downgrade. Yep, more evidence this gang is committed to making sure US lands in the ash heap of history. After all , we deserve it don;t you see? We’re rejecting their so-called leadership, and we, of course, should be punished.
These choices make one thing perfectly clear: Harry Reid, inspired by the success they had with the debt ceiling ‘negotiations’ with Boehner, fuller expects to have more disastrous liberal plans emerge from this charade. Boehner folded before, and he will likely fold again.
In the first of what will be a closely watched selection process for a powerful new deficit panel, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid announced he will appoint Democratic Sens. Patty Murray (Wash.), Max Baucus (Mont.) and John Kerry (Mass.) as his three choices for a super committee charged with finding more than $1 trillion in spending cuts by the end of this year.
Murray will serve as co-chair of the 12-member panel. Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) will select her co-chair and two other panelists, as required by the next debt limit agreement signed into law by President Barack Obama last week. Minority Leaders Nancy Pelosi and Mitch McConnell will each select three additional members.
When it comes to what Boehner, McConnell and Pelosi might do (besides just throw gasoline on us and light a match), here’s The Hill’s roundup of other potential Super Theater of the Absurd Committee members.
