Quote of the Day – Romney Staffer Admits GOP is Rooting Against Economy

“I am buying that they’re rooting against the economy somewhat, because they think that the short term pain of the next four months is much better than having an additional four years under Obama. If we have to suffer between now and November to get a president, they’re all for it.”

 – Former Romney adviser Rob Gray

and, as Bob Cesca says:

…they don’t give a rip that “the economy” isn’t just some sort of abstract fart in the wind. It’s real people with real families in need of real jobs, and broadly speaking it’s the financial health of the United States. Republicans are rooting against that. Good people. Let’s totally continue to take them seriously — you know, because they’re so serious.

If anything should be working against Romney and pals among the rest of us in America, it is that. That conservative politicians would let their country flush down the drain instead of helping it survive is their primary failure.

  1. This is so frustrating to read about. I mean, I’m not surprised at all because the evidence has pointed to this at least since 2010 and the emergence of the Tea Party, but I think it was pretty obvious before then too. I’m glad to see that people continue to point this out – the fact that most people don’t seem to realize that this is going on just kills me. Thanks for pointing it out!
