Fast and ferocious is not another phony Obama administration scandal like Solyndra, Fast and Furious, Benghazi or the IRS targeting TEA Party groups. Fast and ferocious is how I describe GOP, FOX and their allies speed and venom in making up new allegations to divert the public and the media from real scandals such as the recent GOP-sponsored government shutdown and the continuing GOP obstruction. It is much easier and less time-consuming to make up false charges than it is to refute them. Obstructionists on the Right accept neither science nor logic in the refutation of their claims. Their false charges live on in the blogosphere, on talk radio and on FOX. For an example, please see the second related article below.
Who will lead the GOP now? Mitt has abdicated, and Chris Christie is too busy with the aftermath of hurricane Sandy. The talkers on talk radio and the pundits on FOX are not qualified and not elected either. TEA Party mavens are losing favor. So who will lead the GOP until someone of stature emerges? I believe that John Boehner will be the leader of the GOP in the foreseeable future. I doubt that he wants to be the leader outside the House, but Mitch McConnell is not now and probably never will be the Senate’s Majority Leader.
