Supercommittee Successful Failure for GOP

It worked.  The "Super Committee" did what the Republican Congressman and Senators who sold you out wanted it to do.   Oh, it did not solve the budget crisis.   It did not really reduce spending, except shaving some of the size of the increases off a budget that is already too large.   It did not "work" for helping the country.  It never had a realistic chance at that.  It did not work for its publicly stated purpose, but it did work for its real purpose.

Conservative activists, think back to just before the time when your Republican Senator or Congressman voted against your wishes to cave on the debt ceiling.   In my state, that was all of them, Boozeman, Griffin, Womack, and Crawford.   They all voted to raise the debt ceiling.  

Remember what was going through your head just before that.  Right up until they came up with the "Super Committee" idea, you were ready to hold them accountable if they caved on the debt ceiling.  Then they cave on the debt ceiling, but in the guise of passing the buck to this "Super Committee."  A few months later, you have probably forgotten about their feckless vote to maintain the status quo right up until they break the economy.  Why?  Because you are so outraged at the "Super Committee."   Your anger has been transferred from your own "representative" to those terrible politicians on the "supercommitte."  Ahh, loser, but you don't get to vote for them!

Brilliant isn't it?   I can picture the strategy sessions in my head, "Gee, the natives are getting restless, why don't we pick a dozen of us in safe seats and punt to them.   That way, people will direct all their anger to them and forget all about our sellout vote on the debt ceiling."

Congratulations to Republican strategists for keeping your base bamboozled one more time.  You can probably leverage this deceit into another term of "public service." Maybe that will be long enough to get rich through insider trading before you crash the economy for all us little people.
