Republicans Are Dangerously Off-Base About Economy

Here's Boehner quoted in the Washington Post today:

"But the American people know that more Washington spending isn't the answer."

Uh - excuse me, no. With disinflation picking up speed, more spending (on the right sorts of stimulation) is EXACTLY the answer.

But why would anyone listen to these idiots about the economy now? It was stupidity like this that got us into this mess. Someone should stuff Boehner in a closet while the rest of the room tries to save our asses, and quickly.

Or is it simply, as some suggest, that Republicans WANT to turn this into a Great Depression so that Obama will get the blame? I'd hate to think they were that cynical, but after reading this, I have my doubts.
