GOP Transparency

Ezra posts a good timeline of GOP bipartisanship since the election. As he says, they've stuck to the same game plan for the last two years. The plot of this story was nothing if not predictable.

Less than two weeks ago, Harry Reid boldly assured us he would force the Republicans to vote on tax cuts for only the middle class. The events of today suggest the GOPers will once again succeed in walking all over him.

In response to GOP's notice of permanent obstruction, Reid's spokesman said:
Republicans have simply put in writing their political strategy which they have pursued over the last two years: obstruct and delay action on critical matters, and then blame the Democrats for not addressing the needs of the American people. This strategy is very cynical but very obvious and transparent.”
All true, but the point is -- it's working. For the GOP.
