Some moron congressman from Texas today said they're not giving up. "We're not the French. We don't surrender." So, throw in stupidity plus an insult to one of our closest allies. When somebody in the crowd reminded him how do you surrender in a fight you started, the congressman went mute. That's the kind of stupidity we're dealing with here.
Dude, 7 years ago, Democrats were basically accusing Republicans of enslaving the grandchildren over raising Bush's debt ceiling. Let's keep some perspective here.
