They threw their hissy fit (I'm surprised Boehner didn't break out into tears again) and as usual tried to change the subject from the lawbreaking Bush administration to the jingoistic---save America from terrorists-rhetoric that they are famous for. This is their play. Make the House and Senate into a do nothing Congress---grand stand on every issue so they can try to dupe the media...
