WASHINGTON (AP) Without a bipartisan agreement this summer to reduce the federal deficit and raise the debt limit, the economy could suffer a horrendous blow, leaders of both parties say. If that happens, some will point fingers at a bearded, slightly disheveled man who's barely known outside political circles in Washington.
For two decades, Grover Norquist has been the driving force in pushing the Republican Party toward an ever-more rigid position of opposing any tax increase, of any kind, at any time. He has been so successful that some GOP officials fear they've let Norquist squeeze them into a corner where they'll be unable to declare victory even if they win the great majority of their budget demands in negotiations with congressional Democrats and President Barack Obama.
Democrats, meanwhile, use Norquist to paint the GOP as an unreasonable party that kowtows to billionaires at the expense of middle-class Americans.
Obama is insisting that even if a deficit-reduction accord relies overwhelmingly on spending cuts, it also must have some revenue increases. Democrats say they should start with eliminating some not-so-popular tax breaks that Norquist and his allies stoutly defend.

It’s so transparent when the Soros Left nominates someone for the Two Minutes Hate.
Noquist is about as influential as my dogs rosette...
Haha. My thoughts exactly on the Koche brothers. I know more about them from the howls of leftists than I do in from any other source.
I see the Associated Depressed is trying to add on Grover Norquist to the group.
AP, never would a thunk it. /ssrc
Restore the Constitution. Starve the beast. Reverse the Costitutional Revolution of 1937. Any Republican that doesn’t tow the line be damned. Enuff of the socialists and progressives. Had there been the Democrati(ion of the internet when Wilson and the progressives upended bedrock Constitutional principles, they never would have had their way. Unelected judges ruling the people based upon personal views of “fairness” (slurred like Michael Savage) may be the current state, but we do not have to stand for such un-American, a-Constitutional perspewctive.
The AP propaganda machine is busily cranking out their Commie screeds, not even pausing to take a break during the long holiday weekend.
And now the obummer is talking about just abrogating the constitution in regards to the debt ceiling—4th section of the 14th amendment—”I can do whatever the hell I want..” this thing needs to be removed like the cancer that he is.
“Few elected Republicans will openly feud with Norquist. His power derives from his relentless pressure ... “
For those of you noobs unfamiliar with Grover, he’s something like Hitler and Darth Vader, but a much, much more dangerous monster than both of them together.
Here he is in action:
Even the name “Grover Norquist” is obviously designed to strike terror into the hearts of the masses. I know I’m quaking just from having typed it!
Babington and AP are a dissembling pair. Babington claims that there are “leaders of both parties” which decry the hard-line approach to the debt ceiling. He then does not really prove his point. He, in essence, tries to give the Democrats cover. To paraphrase Forrest Gump, phoney is as phoney does.
You mean Grove Norquist the jihadi sympathizer, that Grover Norquist? Bwahahaha!
It doesn’t matter. Neocon, paleocon, whatever you got. One straw man’s as good as another!

As they say ‘follow the Constitution’. Honor Thy Debts.
Taxes should be increased to pay for military actions aka wars instead of throwing grandparents off the bridge and firing teachers.
