The Guardian: Did Republicans deliberately crash the US economy?


Michael Cohen channeling Frances Fox Piven

Be it ideology or stratagem, the GOP has blocked pro-growth policy and backed job-killing austerity all while blaming Obama[...]

But increasingly, Democrats are making the argument that the real culprit for the country's economic woes lies in a more discrete location: with the Republican Party.

In recent days, Democrats have started coming out and saying publicly what many have been mumbling privately for years Republicans are so intent on defeating President Obama for re-election that they are purposely sabotaging the country's economic recovery. These charges are now being levied by Democrats such as Senate majority leader Harry Reid and Obama's key political adviser, David Axelrod.

For Democrats, perhaps the most obvious piece of evidence of GOP premeditated malice is the 2010 quote from Senate minority leader, Mitch McConnell:

"The single most important thing we want to achieve is for President Obama to be a one-term president."[Evidence!!!..ed]
Surprised he didn't bring up the evil Juice too!
