As Mitt Romney, Karl Rove and other millionaires desperate to save their tax breaks prepare to convene in Utah this weekend, we look back on a week when the Euro could have fallen apart, but didn’t. The GOP could have actually looked at the dangers of high-powered guns on the border, but didn’t. The Supreme Court could have ruled on ObamaCare, but didn’t. The Fed could have done something about the mewing economy, but didn’t. Mitt Romney could have taken a coherent stand on immigration, but didn’t. And the media could have gone crazy about a poll showing the President up by 13 points, but didn’t.
Here’s how Twitter made sense of a week that didn’t:
Ah, democracy! Nothing like waiting on pins and needles to find out whether five guys will knock down a law that took a year to write&pass.
