Drum: "We Are Well and Truly Down The Rabbit Hole

Responding to Marco Rubio's deranged claim that Obama is a "failed president," Drum writes:
Republicans got the tax cuts they wanted. They got the financial deregulation they wanted. They got the wars they wanted. They got the unfunded spending increases they wanted. And the results were completely, unrelentingly disastrous. A decade of sluggish growth and near-zero wage increases. A massive housing bubble. Trillions of dollars in war spending and thousands of American lives lost. A financial collapse. A soaring long-term deficit. Sky-high unemployment. All on their watch and all due to policies they eagerly supported. And worse: ever since the predictable results of their recklessness came crashing down, they've rabidly and nearly unanimously opposed every single attempt to dig ourselves out of the hole they created for us.
One ends up saying the same thing over and over...but it seems to need saying. The GOP either steals or comes close to stealing an election, so we get an utterly incompetent Republican rather than a competent Democrat. The next eight years is spent crashing the country into a very big, entirely avoidable, collection of ditches. The GOP then spews unrelenting bile at the Democrat the people bring in to clean up the mess, and they oppose his every effort to do so. And the cherry on top is: they run around blaming it all on the (sane, intelligent, competent, well-intentioned, effective, centrist) Democrat that's trying to fix the very precious things that they broke.

They are deranged.

Here you go.
