After passing a bill they were warned would create problems, and overriding the President’s veto of the bill, Republican leaders are now saying that they made a mistake. You’ll never guess who is to blame.
Republicans said Thursday the White House should have done more to alert them earlier in the process of the bill’s possible consequences.
“That was a good example, it seems to me, of failure to communicate early about the potential consequences of a piece of legislation that was obviously very popular,” Mr. McConnell said Thursday.
Of course they were warned months ago, in writing, that it was a bad bill. What’s shocking is not that they would ignore good advice. I could respect them deciding they were right and the President was wrong, and sticking to their guns. But no, they’re saying (a) the President was right all along, and (b) it is the President’s fault that they didn’t know what they were doing. This is not how you talk if you’re a political party that knows how to run a government.
