CBS's Smith to Ann Coulter: What If Tea Partiers Bring Government 'To A Screeching Halt'?
Tuesday's CBS Early Show, co-host Harry Smith continued to fret over
government gridlock in the wake Republican electoral gains, asking Ann
Coulter: "...big Republican wave just rolls in there. There'll
be a routine vote, for instance, to increase the debt ceiling and the
tea party guys are going to say, 'over my dead body.' And the government
comes to a screeching halt. Then what happens?"
Coulter responded by predicting how the liberal media would spin such a scenario: "Well, the media will blame the Republicans. But, it's no longer 1995. That was the last time there was a government shutdown. And America, when there's a government shutdown, they're all responsible. The President is as responsible as Congress. But now we have the internet, so I think the Americans are going to know it this time."
