I don't give a scrawny fascist's ass about the tsk-tsking of Godwin's Law scolds, because it's now indisputable that Karl Rove must have been there, in 1939, writing Joseph Goebbels' script denouncing Poland's sinister aggression against the noble Fatherland.
President Obama says he won't negotiate with Republicans over his proposed more than $1 trillion increase in the debt ceiling as a matter of principle because Congress "should pay the bills that they have already racked up."
Set aside the obvious--that he championed the spending and signed the measures that racked up the bills, which Republicans opposed.
Yes, you may have read it there first, in the WSJ, straight from Herr Rove: Republicans opposed the Bush tax cuts and the Iraq war and the prescription drug plan and those assorted deregulatory schemes which so ineluctably contributed to mass unemployment and plummeting government revenue--and every one of them "championed" and "signed" by that state senator, Barack Obama.
Furthermore, asserts Reichfucker Rove, "There may be no person in America with less moral authority than Mr. Obama on this issue."
