National Review columnist Andrew C. McCarthy writes Bachmann Is Not the Radical in the Room, in which he points out that John McCain, referred to by McCarthy as “Big Gummint” and “the very model of a progressive Rockefeller Republican” is once again helping Obama win. He did his best to insure that Democrat victory in 2008 and is back at work for the 2012 event.
From the commentary: Contrary to McCain’s bluster, the position taken by Bachmann and her allies is not political posturing. It is a defensive stand to save us from Obama’s transformation — which is to say, from doom. It is a stand that says the government needs to figure out how to make do on $14.3 trillion. Only a short time ago, conservatives considered it extreme for government to need a $9 trillion credit line. Now, with the credit line at $14.3 trillion and rising, somehow Bachmann is the extremist, and we’re to see as the adults in the room the guys who say, “Let’s give Obama two or three trillion more, as long as we can pretend we’re not responsible for the catastrophe we all know is inevitable.
