Dysfunctional Democrats?

Pres. Bush devoted his weekly radio address last Saturday to the fact that the Democrats who control Congress can’t seem to get their work done. And he used the failed immigration bill as an example.

I have no lost love for the Democrats, but Bush is way off base here and everyone knows it. I am beginning to wonder if the President has lost his marbles. From what I can tell, the immigration bill failed because of the Republicans in Congress, not the Democrats. Reid was right when he told Bush that the Lefties had their votes lined up; the GOP was the one who couldn’t get the votes for passage.

Now the true Republicans were right to defeat the immigration bill. It was the wrong thing to do. And the voters did a good job of telling them to vote against it.

What I don’t get is why Bush would bring it up now and blame the Democrats. He knows better than that. I just don’t know what he’s up to. Maybe he’s trying to shame them in to passing the budget bill, but he’s going to have to do better than that. It just won’t do for him to say the things he did when everyone knows it ain’t so. Things in Foggy Bottom are getting stranger all the time.
