House of Representatives Could Undo Obama (At This Rate)

Why are Democrats undermining President Obama? It’s easy to understand why Rush Limbaugh is hoping Obama will fail. From his perspective, Obama’s energy, labor and health care policies (among others) will yank the country hard to the left, weakening our capitalist economy and ushering in failed socialist policies. But why is his own party running so scared?

From the moment Nancy Pelosi instituted crassly partisan procedural rules on the opening day of the 111th Congress, mocking Obama’s promised new bipartisan era, Democrats in the House and Senate have done their utmost to discredit the president.
From wresting control of the Stimulus bill to packing that dismal piece of legislation with pork and an uncomfortable violation of NAFTA to the latest witch hunt over AIG bonuses, Congressional Democrats have worked to weaken the president and his deputies — most especially his beleaguered Treasury Secretary, Tim Geithner. What gives?

It is possible that my brain does not contain enough dark eddies to comprehend the devious calculations that have led to these maneuvers.
