"Bottom line, there is a lot of buyer's remorse," said Rep. Tom Feeney (R-Fla.). If the vote were held today on the Medicare prescription drug benefit, he said, as many 120 Republicans would vote against it. "It was probably our greatest failure in my adult lifetime," he said...Nice article from the WaPo today covering the congressional rebellion against Bush, and all I can say is that I have to laugh. I'll laugh even harder if the GOP majority is kicked to the curb this fall, which is a major possibility.
Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), a Bush ally who dismissed concerns about an inattentive White House, said he regrets voting for the No Child Left Behind bill in the first term.
Not that I have any great love for Democrats, who are the only party, as if that were possible, that has even less principle than the GOP. But at least the Democrats will ensure that nothing happens domestically for the next two years - probably the best one can hope for - and there is unlimited comedic potential in those three little words, "Speaker Nancy Pelosi."
If we're going to send in the clowns, we might as well do it right.
