The Financial Services Chair says during a presser that he doesn’t understand the GOP leadership’s strategy. “Because somebody hurt their feelings they decided to punish the country.”
Comes after Rep. Boehner and others say Pelosi’s partisan floor speech is to blame for the financial rescue bill’s defeat.
And from Jesus leader side of the bed:
The failure of the government bailout took Mr. Obama and his aides by surprise. A copy of his speech that was distributed to reporters upon arriving here, declared:
“Today, Democrats and Republicans in Washington have agreed on an emergency rescue plan that is our best and only way to prevent an economic catastrophe.”
To be fair, I am sure there is just as much deshabille in the McCain compass-less wagon train…

The House has voted down the bailout bill, to everyone’s surprise.
So much for party discipline. This bill was supported by John McCain and Barack Obama, the presidential candidates who, between them, have the support of nearly every member of the House.
But a majority of the House voted along with Bob Barr, the Libertarian who said, “We need to make Wall Street take the hit for its irresponsible investment decisions,” and Ralph Nader, the independent candidate who described the bill as “a bailout for Wall Street crooks.”
I had assumed the House leadership could assure that enough members of both parties held their noses and voted yes to gain a narrow margin for passage. But what we have here is a rejection of what Mr. Nader calls the two “corporate candidates.” ::snipsnappy!::
