Worse and Worser

There is a lot of truth to this:

All Dems want is more taxing and spending. It’s who they are. Year in, year out, their response to finding us in a hole is to keep digging.

The Obama Administration spent a trillion dollars of your money on a “stimulus” that stimulated nothing but government, debt, and long-term unemployment. Yet their response is to “keep digging.” The problem is Obama made things worse. His solution is to make them worser. The only thing he needs the Republicans for is to provide bipartisan cover for the worseness. Or as the Iranians put it a few years back:

Iran will resume uranium enrichment if the European Union does not recognize its right to do so, two Iranian nuclear negotiators said in an interview published Tuesday.

If you don’t let us go nuclear, we’ll carry on going nuclear. That’s basically the Democrat negotiating position on spending.
