Republicans shooting themselves on the foot (again)
February 20, 2009
First they give away whatever seats they have left in the Rust Belt, and even some in the South, by opposing any help to Detroit.
Then they give Obama carte blanche to NOT work with them on the upcoming major legislation (70% of public now considers them ‘the party of NO’ while viewing Obama as conciliatory and fair).
Now in California, by their intransigence, they have singlehandedly ensured that the 2/3 rule for passing budgets is repealed in an upcoming ballot. This will effectively take away what little shred of power they still have in the state.
