Will They Ever Learn?

From Political wire:

Republicans Set Obstacles for Incoming Democrats

"Like a retreating army, Republicans are tearing up railroad track and planting legislative land mines to make it harder for Democrats to govern when they take power in Congress next month," the Wall Street Journal reports.

"Already, the Republican leadership has moved to saddle the new Democratic majority with responsibility for resolving $463 billion in spending bills for the fiscal year that began Oct. 1... The unstated goal is to disrupt the Democratic agenda and make it harder for the new majority to meet its promise to reinstitute 'pay-as-you-go' budget rules, under which new costs or tax cuts must be offset to protect the deficit from growing."

Its this kind of chicanery that cost them the last election. Maybe once, they should try putting the interests of the nation above those of the Republican Party.

No, certainly not! I've been having the same thing happen to me at other blogger.com blogs.

And I was wondering why I wasn't getting any comments, even though I appear to be getting more vists and page views.
