“Call The Bluff”

What Digby said.

Who could have ever predicted that the Republicans (plus Bennie) would filibuster financial reform? Bowl me over with a feather.

As I have written ad nauseam, this isn’t some deeply complicated Machiavellian strategy. They have done this since the moment Obama took office. they string the dems along, pretending to be earnestly engaged. Then they take offense at some irrelevant, niggling detail and vote against it en masse, holding out the bait that they may come back if the Dems will just water it down a little more to please them. Wash, rinse, repeat.
