If everyone in one party votes the same way, and the members of the other party split their vote, which party is being partisan? Certainly the news coverage makes it sound like the Republicans are the partisan ones, but I argue that it’s the Democrats, whipping this vote, which acted partisanly.

“National Organization for Women, a liberal group that advocates for gender equality” Naw — totally a Democrat front group. They should give up the name to a bunch that has females as their priority rather than a political party.

Funny how Barack Obama believes that a corrupt private bank will somehow improve the lives of the American people.
