The media announces the GOP’s biggest worry. Thanks, media.

Why is the burden always on the Republicans? Isn’t Obama the one spending our money irresponsibly? Why didn’t we see headlines about Clinton being obstinate? Isn’t Obama being obstinate here? What the Republicans need to worry about the most is the mainstream media picturing them somehow as bad guys and giving Obama a pass.

GOP’s biggest worry in budget fight

Look at how this supposedly objective reporter writes about Boehner.  Are liberals really for party heads “bending” subordinates to their will? 

But it’s not clear Boehner can bend his colleagues to his will. 

In September 2008, when Republicans controlled the White House and Democrats ran the House, Boehner implored his fellow Republicans to back a $700 billion bailout of the deeply troubled financial system. Two-thirds of them refused, the measure failed, and blue chip stocks immediately lost 7 per cent of their value.

Boehner’s current Republican caucus is more focused on cutting spending than was the 2008 group.
