    or, that's what one of the nation's top conservative columnists, and the also National Review, the nation's top Con magazine says.



    National Review calls Republicans a bunch of whiny crybabies for trying to blame Pelosi's speech for "forcing" them to vote no, on one of the most important bills they will ever vote for in their careers:

    Nothing new here.

    I especially enjoyed the National Review article:

    This was spot-on:

    Notably the author neglects to mention tht 96 house democrats voted against this bill also. Nancy Pelosi democrat house leader could not even convince 11 of them to come her way to pass this bill.

    Nope, I am glad the republicans stood strong against this bill. 99 out of 100 Americans are against this bill too.

    So let them blame Republicans--it just may backfire on the democrats who supported it.

    As a Republican I will gladly take the blame on this. Hell, my Democratic Representive just earned my vote for voting against it.

    what you and other Repubs fail to acknowledge is that Pelosi and the Dems delivered the agreed upon amount of votes. They went in with Nancy Pelosi telling the Repubs she could deliver between 135 - 140 votes and that they needed to bring the rest... she brought her votes... she did her job. that's the end of the story....

    I think most rational people see this for what it is...the Repubs playing party politics with the worst financial crisis in modern history since the Depression.

    :clap2: way to go dummies.
