This is no more rational than any other explanation…

Hello again, Meg from 2011. 
Just a reminder — in 2011, Rep. John Boehner said the GOP received 98% of what they wanted in the deal that hath wrought the sequester.
Don’t back down now, boys. Own it. This is even more accurate than when I posted it July 27, 2011. I got hate mail for this post. It’s nearly two years later, and screw y’all that sent “love” letters because I was right.
Hey, why fix shit and pass a compromise to revoke the sequester when you can filibuster said compromise and give press conferences in front of podiums labeled with the oh-so-clever “#Obamaquester”?
Why do any of that when you can watch the world burn, matches in hand, and try to blame it on the president? Operative word there is “try” — the Congressional GOP is comprised of little more than petty economic terrorists.
