I believe Mr. Taibbi has a point:
I’ll say this for George Bush: you’d never have caught him frantically negotiating against himself to take the meat out of a signature legislative initiative just because his approval ratings had a bad summer. Can you imagine Bush and Karl Rove allowing themselves to be paraded through Washington on a leash by some dimwit Republican Senator of a state with six people in it the way the Obama White House this summer is allowing Max Baucus (favorite son of the mighty state of Montana) to frog-march them to a one-term presidency?
I disagree with the last sentence, if nothing else crazy is still crazy. But the frustration of constantly negotiating against themselves is fucking maddening. The GOP is NOT going to allow you jackshit, fuck them -- if you want to do so with a smile that's fine -- but one gets the feeling there will be a smile, but as for who is actually being fucked, well...
