Since I have explained all this logically — and the end result of explaining this logically is to illustrate the on-the-surface illogic of all of these people afraid of the government shutdown. It simply is illogical. Everybody bleating about, “No, no! No, no! Ohhhh, no! Shut down the government? Oh, my God! Shut down the government? We’re gonna get blamed. We’re gonna get creamed! No! No!” They don’t really mean that. Here’s what it all means.
They may mean that, but when you strip all this away, what it really means is — and batten down the hatches here. It means that the vast majority of the membership of the Republican establishment and their donors want amnesty. That’s what all this means. You’ve gotta cut through the noise here, which is one of the things I always try to do, not get distracted, ’cause all of this talk about a government shutdown is a sideshow. These people are smart enough to know.
Hell, if I can figure it out, they can.
“A government shutdown is so devastating that we can’t recover! Oh, my God,” and we only won a landslide election? What this is about is the establishment concocting an excuse where they don’t have to stop Obama because they don’t want to, folks. That’s the only logical interpretation for all of this. The election results are clear. The voters don’t want any more of what Obama is promising, implementing or offering. They don’t want any more of it.
The election was the only way people in this country have of saying “stop.” Well, the people they elected to stop it, at least in the case of amnesty, don’t want to stop it. But they can’t come out and say that. They can’t come, after all of this, and act like they are as eager for amnesty as Obama, but they are. We know it to be true. We know the Republican establishment, we know the Chamber of Commerce, we know that many of the donors want amnesty.
They want all of these low-skilled and low-educated workers because they’re low-wage. They’ve not even denied this, in recent months/years. So what this is really all about is it’s just easier for these people to hide behind the dangers of a government shutdown as the excuse for not stopping Obama. That’s all this really is, because they’re not this shortsighted.
They don’t really think we can’t shut down the government and stop Obama because of a poll in the Washington Post about being blamed for a shutdown. It’s that they don’t want to. The polling data is a convenient excuse. “Hey, look, if we do it we’re gonna get creamed! We just won, and you want us to throw away this victory by ticking off the people who just elected us?” It’s a sideshow excuse. That’s what it is. Face it.
