Well that puts you ahead of "the Dean", for Grandpa Broder once again forgot that those things existed. I’m sure it’s just a simple misunderstanding.
For in Broder’s world this…
Many other "victories" credited to the House were later undone by the Senate, including all the restrictions on the deployment of troops in Iraq. And on 46 of the measures passed by the House, more than one-third of the total, the notation is added, "The president has threatened to veto," or has already vetoed, the bill.
…is TOTALLY Nancy Pelosi’s fault. It’s completely not the doing of his non-bouncing boy, who is the soul of compromise apparently to Davey.
There are many problems we Democrats have with our own Congressional delegation; but they pale in comparison to the other side of the aisle and the White House. But in Broder’s world, if they just did what Bush wanted, without all the chattering, he’d be one contended, grossly overpaid, man.
