There is a soon to be unleashed shitstorm which my guess is will wreak havoc all across the national landscape.
Republicans on the aforementioned panel have broken ranks with the panel and will issue their own report on the root causes of the financial crisis with a misleading focus on government action and downplay the participation of the financial sector. The story is HERE.
This isn’t the shitstorm I am referring to though. This is merely one piece of the developing picture where republicans are forming up the ranks for an all out assault on the administration and on controlling the political dialog come January 1, 2011. An offshoot of their efforts is undoubtedly to bring as much pressure as possible on any and all senators who can be persuaded by whatever means possible to join their coalition.
Keep in mind the effort is going to be on completely gutting, if possible, any or all democratic or liberal programs. All are going to be targeted. It is going to be a scorched earth tactic driven by 24/7 lies. The republicans breaking ranks on the above panel and offering their alternative analysis is an expression of how far they are willing to stretch the truth. This is setting the stage.
Unless I am reading the tea leaves wrong we are about to witness what could well be the most heated political struggle ever in the history of this country. Everything is in place and ready to go with the participants waiting for the starting gun to sound. We may think we’ve seen ugly before now but what is about to happen will make anything before pale by comparison. I hope the WH is paying attention and understands that what is going on with this panel is a very clear heads up which will soon be followed by some very heavy incoming fire targeted directly at our commander in chief.
