    Maxine Waters blames Rahm Emanuel for the failure of Obama's health care reform, says he recruited too many centrists when he was chair of DCCC, Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.

    Yesterday, democratic congressman Gene Green of Houston put the onus on Speaker Pelosi, pointing to her strategical error in pushing cap and trade before bringing up health care reform.

    Whereas Ms Waters may be happier with a lower parliament containing a stronger GOP delegation, it's hard to see how a redder house would advance the ambitions of Pelosi/Obama.

    Congressman Green, on the other hand, and others who echoed his criticism are spot on. The first chink in the credibility of Pelosi/Obama was the widely perceived failure of the stimulus to stimulate.

    Cap and trade was the last straw.

    The Green story was all over cable news yesterday. Unfortunately, it is not in print. I can't find a link.

    Minority leader Boehner, however, chimed in on the tactical error that was prioritizing cap and trade over health care. Boehner said, "There are some members on the Democrat side that got both arms broken during the cap-and-trade fight on the floor, now there're no more arms to break. That's why they're having problems."

    Pretty sad when the Anti-Republicans have to blame each other for their manifold shortcomings--sad for them, anyway, but highly entertaining for that majority of Americans who recognize what idiots the lunatic liberals really are.
