McConnell: Hostage taking forevermore

Mitch McConnell discloses the GOP plan:
What we have done, Larry, also is set a new template. In the future, any president, this one or another one, when they request us to raise the debt ceiling, it will not be clean anymore. This is just the first step. This, we anticipate, will take us into 2013. Whoever the new president is, is probably going to be asking us to raise the debt ceiling again. Then we will go through the process again and see what we can continue to achieve in connection with these debt ceiling requests of presidents to get our financial house in order.
Of course, the GOPers have already tacitly conceded 2012 to Obama. Anybody believe if a GOPer holds the White House, that this will happen? Me neither.
