Plus ça change

Jane Hamsher at Firedoglake is saying that for the purpose of preserving Obama's image, Rahm Emmanuel is throwing the House Democratic leadership (read Nancy Pelosi) under the bus by blaming them for everything the GOPpers are complaining about in the stimulus bill.

I don't know if that's necessarily true, but it did remind me of this from November 20:
Rahm Emmanuel. Hillary Clinton. Tom Daschle. Eric Holder, Assistant Attorney General under Bill Clinton. Greg Craig, former Special Counsel to Clinton. David Axelrod, long-time consultant to Democrats.

I feel the tide of "change" just washing over me.
No one can say they weren't told. And with the word tonight being that Senate Dems have again caved to GOPper hissy fits and cut $100 billion in spending from the stimulus, leaving a package that is 42% tax cuts (which are among the least efficient ways to get an economy going), I'm increasingly of the mind that what we're seeing might be called "aeghcn," that is, about the most screwed-up excuse for "change" possible.
