IT IS AN ACCURATE REFLECTION OF THEIR IMMATURITY:

Where Credit Is Due (David Freddoso, 9/30/08, National Review)

House Republican leaders] blamed the failure of the bailout bill on a speech given by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

“We could have gotten there today had it not been for the partisan speech that the speaker gave on the floor of the House,” House Minority Leader John Boehner (R., Ohio) said yesterday. Pelosi’s speech, he said, “poisoned our conference, caused a number of members that we thought we could get, to go south.” [...]

[D]o House Republican leaders really want us to believe that Republicans killed the bailout just because their feelings were hurt? Are they trying to tell us that Republicans are touchy whiners who will let their country down on a supposedly essential matter because they were offended by typical, turgid partisan rhetoric?
