Politico reported this morning on the tensions between the White House and congressional Democrats, allegedly over the White House assessment as to how well the Democrats may fare in November.
Reading this piece was admittedly one of the best laughs I have had this week. Pelosi and congressional Democrats want more credit for the president’s agenda? Trust me, most Americans are willing to give congressional Democrats the business, the credit, and the heat for the domestic and foreign policy agendas of the past 18 months.
In a subliminal way, Gibbs’ statement was indicative of the credit House Democrats so richly deserve for passing a stimulus package that was poorly targetted; creating a health care plan that will do very little in terms of increasing the overall health of the nation much less increase our GDP; and not keeping enough pressure, as representatives of the American public, on President Obama to get us out of Afghanistan and Iraq.
It’s no wonder that GOP chairman Michael Steele made his awkward attempt to gain the middle political real estate that these very congressional Democrats were so eager to abandon in order to placate their far left liberal base.
If Pelosi wants credit, she’ll get it alright.
