Which is the “Do Nothing” Party?

Recently before Congress Treasury Secretary Geithner responded to a question from Rep. Paul Ryan saying, “You are right to say we’re not coming before you today to say ‘we have a definitive solution to that long term problem.’ What we do know is, we don’t like yours.”

As Guy Benson at Townhall put it:

Those two sentences speak to a mentality so bereft of intellectual vigor, so stunningly and candidly shallow, so thoroughly irresponsible, so politically myopic, selfish, and cowardly, that it should disqualify this crew from a second term in office. What a disgrace. Remember this moment the next time Democrats accuse the GOP of being the “do nothing,” intransigent, “party of no.”
