From The Annals Of Chutzpah – The Daily Dish | By Andrew Sullivan

“To present such a proposal as a serious attempt at restraining spending is to reveal a low opinion of the intelligence of ordinary Americans,” – Karl Rove.

In the end, all you can do is marvel at the vileness of such people, their total lack of any shame, sense of accountability, responsibility or honesty. Rove will advise Republicans to oppose any tax increases and to blame all spending cuts on Democrats if the debt commission comes through. What we saw last night was a president, defending his campaign pledges, against a Washington that has abandoned almost any pretense of tackling any of the actual problems faced by this country, in favor of talk radio grandstanding, FNC propaganda, Democratic cowardice, and Republican cynicism.

And in his eight years of destroying this country’s fiscal balance, moral standing and national security, it takes a man of Rove’s deep cynicism to stand up and lambaste the one man prepared to do something.
