1) How's that "We're going to cut $100 billion from this year's budget!" hopey changey thing working out for you guys?
2) Based on your answer to #1 there, do you actually believe Jim DeMint is going to filibuster the debt ceiling?
Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.) said on the conservative Laura Ingraham Show he is considering filibustering an upcoming vote to raise the nation's $14.3 trillion debt limit if it doesn't contain other fiscal reforms.
Asked if that would serve as the GOP's "Waterloo" in the 2012 elections, the senator replied, "If it is, then let it be."
Granted, Demint has no choice but to say things like this. But will he follow through?
