Democrat Civil War Watch!

Slow news day so enjoy a little popcorn as the Democrats rush to blame each other for their impending collapse.

Gibbsy started it off over the weekend by announcing the obvious, the control of the House is in play.

That got Nancy talking angry smack about the White House behind closed doors.

Now she's pointing out that maybe there's some other group to blame for the falling fortunes of her caucus. Those bastards in "the other body".

While trying to mend ties between her caucus and the White House, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi turned her ire toward her Senate colleagues on Thursday, blaming Senate delays in passing the Democratic agenda for the disappointing jobs picture heading into the midterm elections.

“If we had healthcare sooner, if we had energy sooner, if we had an education bill sooner – they are all three pillars of job creation – and that would have resulted in more jobs created by now,” Pelosi (D-Calif.) told reporters Thursday at her weekly press conference.

Yes, if only Harry Reid had been able to ram even worse stuff through the Senate sooner everything would be roses for the Democrats. They can never admit people just don't like what they are selling. They run as faux moderates, govern as hard left socialists and wonder why people are pissed.

Meanwhile, Keith Hennesey thinks the latest nomination by the White House is a possible sign the Hope and Change bandwagon have moved on to the post-Pelosi era before the Botox drains out of the body.

On the downside, the GOP is still the GOP so let's no underestimate their ability to screw this up and not capitalize on the situation.

Added: Mich McConnell says Republicans "got our groove back" (Mitch is so hip with all that 90's slang. Seriously Mitch, stop.)

“What Republicans are offering the American people is a pledge, a pledge to do everything in our power to restore government to a size and scope that leads to some semblance of competency," he said. "We’re not going to tell you that if you vote Republican, you’re going to wake up in your dream home with a brand new Corvette outside ready to take you to the best job in the world. You know why? Because government can’t deliver that promise.”

Obviously getting back to Bush/GOP Congress Era sized government is nice as a start. I hope, but have no reason to believe, that Mitch and the gang think they are part of the problem too.

Also, it's great to say to people that government can't give you a job and a new Corvette but we also need to be talking about how the GOP has a list of ideas for creating an environment where if you have skills and work hard, the government won't be an impediment to you getting those things either.
