The GOP wrecker strategyMy regular weekly plug for Gene Lyons' column, this one The GOP cage-match strategy Salon 03/03/10. Gene Lyons knows Radical Republicans:
In the midst of the worst financial crisis since the Depression, the GOP has chosen to paralyze government in the hope of blaming the Obama White House and Democratic Congress for getting nothing done. It's a brazen strategy that depends upon news-media complicity and widespread public ignorance for success. Only 26 percent in a recent Pew survey, it's worth reemphasizing, know how many Senate votes are needed to end a filibuster.Tags: gene lyons,
