Something Your Probably Kind of Knew Already

Via The Plum Line, I see that there is a new book out on the stimulus that outlines the extent to which Republicans staked their political fortunes on screwing the president consequences for the country be damned.
“If he was for it, we had to be against it,” Voinovich tells Grunwald. And at another point, characterizing a strategy session Republicans and McConnell had held in early January of 2009, Voinovich said: “He wanted everyone to hold the fort. All he cared about was making sure Obama could never have a clean victory.”
Of course, this isnt' really news because McConnell himself has said that his top priority was denying the president a second term. Not fixing the economy, not worrying about the unemployed, not foreign threats, not anything. Just ruining the president. I am not sure I can think of a much more disgusting display of negligence among elected officials.
