Popcorn Alert! Blue Dogs And The White House Vs. Pelosi

Over 50 Blue Dog Democrats in the House are circulating a letter asking House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md) to work with them to restore 'regular order' to House proceedings. While this is a little bit of inside baseball, what they are complaining about is Granny McBotox's practice of skipping the regular committee procedures for writing legislation. The letter is going to Hoyer because the Blue Dogs think he will be an ally against Pelosi.

Even more interesting than this internal dust up is the apparent fact that some members of Team Obama are egging the Blue Dogs on against Pelosi.

Rep. Jim Cooper (D-TN) — one of the lead Blue Dogs — made a startling admission to lefty Liberadio on Sunday, suggesting the White House quietly encouraged him to buck House leadership on the stimulus.

Cooper was one of 11 Dems to vote no — joining every GOP House member.

"Well, I probably shouldn’t tell you this, but I actually got some quiet encouragement from the Obama folks for what I’m doing," said Cooper, one of about 55 House Democrats to sign a letter criticizing Speaker Nancy Pelosi for suspending normal debate and committee rules on the $819 billion package.

He went on — and on:

"They know its a messy bill and they wanted a clean bill. Now, I got in terrible trouble with our leadership because they don’t care what’s in the bill, they just want it pass and they want it to be unanimous."

Oh, I do not think Madame Nancy is going to be real happy to hear that the folks from the other end of Pennsylvania Avenue are playing around in her sandbox.

I seem to recall another weak and inexperienced President who came to office promising to change things in Washington and pretty much pissing everyone, including his own congressional party off. What was his name again? James? Jimmy? Something like that.

Democrats...still the best weapon in the Republican Party's arsenal.

Below the fold...Pelosi seems to think there are billions of people living in the US.


Of course this is an innocent slip of the tongue but imagine Bush or Palin had said this.
