I Blame Obama

Mitch McConnell, explaining why the United States Senate passed a law which effectively makes it okay for anyone around the world to sue the United States for any military action it takes:

“That was a good example, it seems to me, of a failure to communicate early about the potential consequences of a piece of legislation,” McConnell told reporters before Congress got out of town until after the elections. “By the time everybody seemed to focus on some potential consequences of it, members had already basically taken a position.”
“I think it was just a ball dropped,” McConnell added. “I wish the president — I hate to blame everything on him, and I don’t — but it would have been helpful had he, uh, we had a discussion about this much earlier than last week.”
Because Republicans can't possibly be expected to find out what is in a bill before they vote for it- knowing that Obama is against it should be reason enough.

Well, with this Republican run Congress, do you really expect them to be able to read, let alone bother to read something they're voting on? On the Republican side, if President Obama was against it, that is all they need to know to vote for it. On the Democrat side, I'm pretty sure the answer would be to take away a sound bite by their opponent about being heartless to 9/11 victims. Stupid reason, but we are on the way to being an Iidocracy. If you have to explain something, you've lost the voter. Image is what matters, details are for others to worry over...

The song "Polular" from Wicked is spot on for our national politics. "It's not aptitude, it's the way you're viewed..."
