Election ’08: The Perils of Pelosi
Last week President Bush displayed his statesmanship by refusing to point a partisan finger while urging government action to fix the mess. Yesterday Nancy Pelosi couldn’t resist a nasty swipe at the Republicans before the bailout vote (evidently repeating the Obama campaign line). Then Pelosi expresses shock and anger when the bill fails.
Two things for the Democrats: (1) If Pelosi, Obama, and the Democrats really want a bill, they can get it any time they want. They control both houses of Congress, and President Bush has his signing pen in hand. (2) If you want Republicans to provide you with political cover for an unpopular bill, the least you can do is not insult and blame them moments before the big vote.
Lest we forget that this is a bipartisan problem, take a look at this video. The Democrats have their fingerprints all over this thing, too.
