Dem on Dem Anger
Here is the red meat from this AP story:
“Rep. Dina Titus, D-Nev., did more than ask. In a private meeting the day after Republican Scott Brown won Sen. Edward Kennedy’s Senate seat, Titus used a profanity to describe to Speaker Nancy Pelosi and freshman lawmakers the Democratic Party’s prospects in the midterm elections if it ignores the lessons of Massachusetts.
“Some House Democrats have privately blamed Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, who faces a tough re-election fight in Nevada, for the party’s woes and the health care bill’s poor prospects.
“We have to wait for the House of Lords to do their contemplating,” said Rep. Anthony Weiner, D-N.Y. “We’re also not getting much guidance from the mother ship about what the White House really wants and what they’re prepared to push for.”
“The administration has not stayed above the blamefest.
“Rep. Marion Berry, D-Ark., who is retiring at the end of the year, said of Obama what some Americans have said all year, “‘You’re trying to do too much too quickly.'”
“Maybe we should listen to them,” Berry said. “If we don’t listen to them, then they will make you listen to them in November.”
