Stop whining and own the damn thing. It’s your bill, your program, you have the votes … do it.
Now this is the Michael Steele I was hoping for. As we detailed today Obama loves the blame game. First it was greedy tonsil pulling foot chopping doctors, then it was all of us. You know, those Nazi, unpatriotic, stupid, Brooks Brothers wearing mobster terrorists. Then, jumping right over big pharma, he blamed the insurance companies, followed by all of us un-Christian Christians, closing yesterday in true Alinsky style … by blaming the Republicans.
Well RNC Chair Mike Steele had just about had enough. The Democrats control the Congress,60 votes in the Senate and the White House. Step to the plate baby, you got the votes. The Republicans can’t stop a damn thing. Pass the bill if you dare.
But they can’t … or they will lose the House. So here’s the strategy. Break up the bill … not just to pass it but to allow weenie (or is it we wee?) blue dogs to vote no and save their seats.
Allah at Hot Air has a nice take on this as well.
