Not Buying It

If wingnut blogs were demanding that President Romney create a couple of $1 trillion platinum coins in order to pay the government’s bills, would lefty blogs be supporting the notion?

I doubt it. They’d be signing petitions about impeachment and agitating that Congress close the apparent loophole ASAP.

It’s a gimmick, almost certainly bound to cause at least as much fiscal and economic trouble as it purports to solve. And furthermore, it is something our cautious and drama-averse President would never try.

Might be time to step away from political blogs again. Without the big easy target of an election to talk about, they’re starting to get silly.
