Grover Norquist Thinks Congressional Republicans Have Been Too REASONABLE When It Comes To Hostage Taking

As I'm sure you're all aware, it seems that the Republicans in congress enjoyed taking the global economy hostage so much last year, they've decided to make it an annual thing. Well, turns out some want to take it to another level. Grover Norquist, the most powerful man in America who can't get laid (to quote Bill Maher), offered this ingenius idea:

MIKE ALLEN: This president is not going to extend [Bush tax cuts], he knows that he loses his leverage that way.

NORQUIST: Well, the Republicans also have other leverage. Continuing resolutions on spending and the debt ceiling increase. They can give him debt ceiling increases once a month. They can have him on a rather short leash, you know, here’s your allowance, come back next month.
ALLEN: Okay, wait. You’re proposing that the debt ceiling be increased month by month?

NORQUIST: Monthly if he’s good. Weekly if he’s not.
Yes, good ole' Grover thinks it would be just downright dandy to threaten the full faith and credit of the U.S. on a weekly basis. As Steve Benen asked yesterday, how the hell is shit like this NOT a major scandal? Here's Grover openly (and proudly) suggesting that the Republicans take economic terrorism to the next level, and instead of going to butt pounding prison, he'll be scheduled to appear on a litany of Sunday talk shows to offer more brilliant insight.

But hey, it's totally okay cause Obama didn't vote to raise the debt ceiling that one time when he was senator. Both sides do it!
