It's still Obama's fault, somehow
That's going to be the Party line for the right wing today as the economy tanks:
The failure to reach agreement on Capitol Hill raised a specter of financial collapse for General Motors and Chrysler, which say they may not be able to survive through this month.
After Senate Republicans balked at supporting a $14 billion auto rescue plan approved by the House on Wednesday, negotiators worked late into Thursday evening to broker a deal but deadlocked over Republican demands for steep cuts in pay and benefits by the United Automobile Workers union in 2009.
Catch that? While the Republicans - who claim to loooooove the workin' man! - were not amiss to giving Joe Sixpack's bosses billions upon billions of dollars, Joe S. was going to be required to take a sharp cut in pay and benefits. Only fair, after all, since if Joe wasn't such a greedy bastard, wanting expensive stuff like health care and more than minimum wage, the automakers wouldn't have had a problem in the first place! And government regulations blah blah emission standards blah blah fuel efficency blah blah blah flibbety-floo.
Like I said, the sad part is that the Joe S.'s who the Repugs wanted to throw to the wolves are now going to tune in Glenn Blecch or the Pigman or Sean Insanity and will be told that it's somehow Obama's and the Dem's fault that this didn't pass - and buy it.
