“Our goal is to bring down approval numbers” for Pelosi and House Dems

As Greg Sargent noted earlier, top House Republican Patrick McHenry has just elucidated the principle goal for his party.  We’ll note that it reveals (unsurprisingly, given the modern party and movement) a singularly partisan understanding of the political enterprise.  No mention or consideration of the financial plight of the nation.  The goal stands directly opposed to bi-partisan effort. 

It’s depressing to acknowledge that many of us have understood for a long while that the modern Republican Party and conservative movement would be expected to operate in such a manner.  It is the nature of the creature it has become over the last three decades.
