house republicans in rebellion


yet another twist on the hill even as washington mutual is seized by the FDIC. i'm watching barney frank and chris dodd excoriating the house republican leadership, which has apparently decided not to participate in the paulson plan legislation. they're calling out the president to bring his party into line, but i'm not sure they're listening to the white house anymore. this potentially jeopardizes the bill.

i can see their position politically. they are facing waterloo in november, potentially the worst republican result since the 1960s, thanks to where the white house has led them. now the administration is a lame duck full of retirees, and they have to face the voters alone. and this same administration is trying to get them to pass one of the most loudly opposed bills in recent memory.
