Crooks and Liars » Shorter House GOP: We killed the bailout bill because Pelosi hurt our feelings
I hope by now it has become obvious to the Democrats. This whole Bailout has been more about how bad the Democrats have govern congress then the need to save the country from financial disaster. These bastards are trying to win the congress back first and fix the economy second.
I know what the Republicans have said and what they have did are two different things. They have set the Democrats up to look like losers twice. On each occasion, they let the Democrats commit to “saying” they were sure they have enough votes to pass legislation only to pull out at the last moment. I would go as far as to say, the representatives who voted against this bill, hid behind a silent posture that went by the Democrats as support. However, the spin after the vote for the bill was anything but silent. The House Republicans attacked the with the conviction of a planed strategy.
Forget the Dum shit, the Democrats need to stop letting the Republican game on them. Although they failed on both occasions to put this in the Democrat’s court, it make no sense to keep playing their game. The Democrats need to drop their participation with the Republicans altogether, create their own bailout bill, and promote it as a critical need for the country. In this way, they don’t have to keep looking over their shoulder waiting for some bomb.
So far, I have seen nothing in the media suggesting this bailout has a ulterior purpose. I don’t expect to either. The media is conservative, and if anything, they will help to hide the fact that so far the only thing that has come out of the Republican effort to bailout our country is a attack on Democrats.
