House Republicans Play The Blame Game

House Speaker-designate Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) raised a few eyebrows yesterday when she compared the GOP’s behavior on the Hill to the Bush administration’s management of the war. "The war in Iraq and the Republicans in Congress are in disarray," Pelosi said. "They are going to leave a mess as they go out."

Given their rather humiliating record, Republicans probably should have just let this one go, but they couldn't help themselves.

"House Democrats have spent every waking moment of the past Congress obstructing any effort towards progress," said Kevin Madden, spokesman for House Majority Leader John Boehner, R-Ohio. "They have tried to blow up the tracks on immigration reform, tax relief, earmark reform, you name it."

This may be the perfect ending for the last day of 12 years of Republican rule of Congress -- a nonsensical, buck-passing response, rationalizing failure. Pathetic.
