The good, the bad, the ugly, and the Democrats

By Owen Paine on Thursday March 29, 2007 05:03 PM

It's getting to look mighty wonderful, as the commander in chief calls out the jackasses in front of a lobby/rally of ox-tough cattlemen.

What's up here? A stand off -- okay, not exactly toe to toe, but a face off nonetheless -- Bush and Cheney at one end of Penn Ave, Nan and Harry at the other, Congo agin White House: cue the Ennio Morricone.

Maybe the Washpost gets to it: it's a replay of the famous Clinton vs Newt chicken run of '95.


Although Democratic leaders ...To prepare... are studying the events of 1995 and 1996, when President Bill Clinton vetoed appropriations bills and then successfully blamed Congress for shutting down the government.... Inside the White House, Bush strategists hope that the Democrats will overplay their hand, as the Republicans themselves did a decade ago.
It don't get any better than this, folks -- pure cornball horse-feathering.

"The dueling events on opposite ends of Pennsylvania Avenue left the executive and legislative branches hurtling toward a high-stakes collision, with neither side showing signs of backing down."

"don't back down"

" Both sides, in fact, appear to be relishing the confrontation to some extent, gambling that they can outmaneuver the other, galvanize the most passionate forces within their parties, win over public opinion and force an eventual resolution on their terms"
