Malkin Award Nominee

"Now is a time for choosing. Now is your time for choosing.  As I pointed out to John Boehner yesterday, despite what the pundits in Washington are telling you, it is you and not Obama who hold most of the cards. Obama has a legacy to worry about. Should the United States lose its bond rating, it will be called the “Obama Depression”. Congress does not get pinned with this stuff," – Erick Erickson, RedState. 

What shocks the conscience here is that Erickson isn't denying that the U.S. might lose its bond rating and spiral into a depression – he just thinks a win for Team R is worth causing immense suffering to millions of people around the world.  And House Republicans appear to be reading this.
