Limbaugh: Tell Obama "We're Waiting for Your Plan, Chief"

This is actually a smart move.

“You know what I would do?” Limbaugh said. “Folks, it is real simple and I have mentioned this before — stop presenting a plan. All we are doing is compromising with ourselves. Just stop presenting the plans. Just sit around and say, ‘We will wait for yours.’ Say it to Obama. Say it to Carney, whatever. But we’re through.”

My only concern is the timing: Two weeks ago this is brilliant. But now? I'm not sure there's time for this.

John McCain, meanwhile, signaled his capitulation in the fight, saying a debt ceiling increase was inevitable (which it is, but there's no point folding early), and then went on to chastise Tea Partiers for their "foolish" demands connecting the Balanced Budget Amendment to the debt ceiling hike.

He's the foolish one. It is completely possible to pass a small (say, $300 billion) debt limit increase that kicks in immediately while making the rest contingent on passing the BBA out of the Congress in, say, two months time.

Limbaugh Has A Point: While conservatives are shredding each other trying to compromise with each other, the Democrats sit back and do nothing.

House Republicans 0n Wednesday morning were calling for the firing of Republican Study Committee staffers after they were caught sending e-mails to conservative groups urging them to pressure GOP lawmakers to vote against a debt proposal from Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio).

Infuriated by the e-mails from Paul Teller, the executive director of the RSC, and other staffers, members started chanting “Fire him, fire him!” while Teller stood silently at a closed-door meetings of House Republicans.

“It was an unbelievable moment,” said one GOP insider. “I’ve never seen anything like it.”

An RSC aide sent a Tuesday e-mail to outside conservatives seeking to “kill the Boehner deal.” The RSC emails were sent to a listserv with conservative activists.

Carney Admits No Default On August 2: So let's not give up the fight based on a false premise.
