Thom Hartmann: Could it be that Republicans REALLY DO wants us to default?
Could it be that Republicans REALLY DO wants us to default? That they want to bring about the next Great Depression to forever link President Obama and the Democrats with economic disaster - just like what happened to Herbert Hoover? Is this the "scorched earth policy" that Republicans talked about when Obama won the presidency - and they're doing it to destroy the Democrats for a generation, the way Hoover destroyed the Republicans? We'll find out - but something tells me that even they don't understand just how bad things could get if we do end up defaulting on our debt.
