Automatically Against Anything

„[…] the modern G.O.P. fundamentally does not accept the legitimacy of a Democratic presidency — any Democratic presidency. We saw that under Bill Clinton, and we saw it again as soon as Mr. Obama took office.

As a result, Republicans are automatically against anything the president wants, even if they have supported similar proposals in the past. Mitt Romney’s health care plan became a tyrannical assault on American freedom when put in place by that man in the White House. And the same logic applies to the proposed debt deals.“

Kolumnist und Nobelpreisträger PAUL KRUGMAN in der heutigen „New York Times“ über den wahren Grund, warum die Republikaner die Sparpläne des Präsidenten ablehnen.
