The Republicans in the House go "all-in" to thwart the economic stimulus package. Each and every one of them voted "No" to the bill signaling a lemming-like adherence to GOP dogma around fiscal stimulus. It didn't matter one bit, though, the bill passed easily thanks to a large Democratic majority. Their efforts were as ineffective as they were risky.
They're now "all-in" on a game of chicken with Obama. They hope he fails. They pray for his failure. They need him to fail. They've sided with the most extreme, radical right-wing elements of their party like Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity. They're calling the shots now. So Obama must fail. Because if he doesn't, they're done. Cooked. Game Over. From ineffective and irrelevant to extinction with one vote.
Good luck with that, GOPers. Good luck.
