“House Republicans are furniture.”
Over and over, Nancy Pelosi and her allies privately delivered the same message to Barack Obama: Mr. President, you can have bipartisanship or you can have a stimulus bill, but you can’t have both.
He seems to have gotten the message. House Republicans, badly outnumbered and shorn of lets-make-a-deal moderates by their losses in the two elections, have proven remarkably immune to crossover appeals, as have most GOP Senators.
That’s because, remarkably, they proved to have some niggling regard for the US Constitution for once, in stark and dire contrast to the Social Democrats.
Read the rest if you like, for a better understanding of the statist tyrants who have shanghaied our country. But you already know what it says. Or ought to.
