Robert Reich on This Week today:
But going into the midterms, I think a lot of Republicans would like to say this was not our bill, this was not our bank bailout, if you had followed us with out tax cuts, we would not be in this position today. And they’re gonna want to do what [Newt Gingrich] did in 1994 to nationalize the election.
No response or dispute from Newt Gingrich. Just a wide grin. So if this is true, and it very likely is true — if the Republicans are sabotaging the recovery bill, and therefore American jobs and the broader economy, so they can run more effectively in 2010 — there’s even less reason to pay attention to their wildly discredited bullshit.
