    Bruce Bartlett was on Hardball today. If you missed his appearance it was simply amazing.

    He destroyed every Republican fiscal talking point in 5 minutes.

    He then ended the interview with this when Chris asked him how to end the debt issue.

    CM: I feel like sanity has just walked into the door. Bruce, so great, now that I realize you're smart and have the numbers, give me two seconds. Any way to solve this kerfuffle?

    BB: I think at this point, there's nothing that can pass the House of Representatives.

    CM: Because it's too much of a zoo?

    BB: Yeah, i think a good chunk of the Republican caucus is either stupid, crazy, ignorant or craven cowards, who are desperately afraid of the tea party people, and rightly so.

    WOW.

    He does let out a dirty little secret though.

    After the jump.

    Daily Kos: Hardball: Bruce Bartlett desroys every Republican fiscal talking point in 5 minutes.

    "Sanity" as in agreeing with Mr. Thrilly Leg, whom almost nobody watches anyways.

    Move along, nothing to see here.

    From a brief read of the transcript I have come to the conclusion.


    YOU ARE FULL OF SHIT!

    Better twist another one.

    They wont actually watch this, they will say silly things about ratings and chills with legs and what not. Anything and everything other than dealing with what he said specifically.

    Cowards.

    I should point out BEFORE SOMEONE CALLS ME A LIAR that Bruce Bartlett calls himself a Independent but was on the Bush and Reagan Admin.

    only a bona fide fruitcake would go postal over limiting gov. to borrowing ( for now) what amounts to 2 full years worth of federal revenue and adding it as debt in 10 years.....and, knowing we have a medicare and medicaid going broke to boot.
