Be Careful What You Wish For

January 8th, 2011

Democrats are apparently refusing to allow the incoming “We’re All About the Rules” Republicans to bypass the rules which would allow the GOP to more quickly attack the health care legislation the Democrats worked so hard to get passed.

Well, isn’t that what the Republicans said they wanted?

Only days from a mid-term election in which they are widely expected to take control of the House, the slogan of the nearly empowered congressional Republicans can be put into two words: “no compromise.” …

“This is not a time for compromise, and I can tell you that we will not compromise on our principles,” Boehner said during an appearance on conservative Sean Hannity’s radio show.

If this report is accurate, then the Democrats gave them exactly what they said they wanted: no compromise. Frankly, I think they had a hell of a lot of gall to go to the Dems and even ask them for that. After treating the Dems like crap and obstructing at every turn, they suddenly want the Dems to cave in even when the GOP trips itself up?

I almost hope that Pelosi and the gang gave Boehner a florid Cheneyism in response. He richly deserves exactly that.
