Because for Republicans, it's all about political power
Posted by Jill | 9:50 PM
And if it means a few million more people lose their jobs, their homes, their health insurance, their retirement investments, that's all OK as far as the Republican Party. Because their party's power trumps everything else. Nothing matters more than Republican Power. And if they can't have it, they'll take the whole damn country down with them:

GOP Rep. Patrick McHenry, a key player in helping craft the Republican message, has offered an unusually blunt description of the Republican strategy right now.

McHenry’s description is buried in this new article from National Journal (sub. only):

“We will lose on legislation. But we will win the message war every day, and every week, until November 2010,” said Rep. Patrick McHenry, R-N.C., an outspoken conservative who has participated on the GOP message teams. “Our goal is to bring down approval numbers for [Speaker Nancy] Pelosi and for House Democrats. That will take repetition. This is a marathon, not a sprint.”

McHenry’s spokesperson, Brock McCleary, tells me his boss is standing by the quote.

So while David Gregory and everyone at MSNBC not named "Rachel Maddow" or "Keith Olbermann" is blaming Barack Obama for a recession that started in December 2007, perhaps they might think about the country that they're helping to create by aiding and abetting Republicans, who want nothing more than a complete economic meltdown because in their warped, twisted worldview, it somehow makes their foul little world better.
