I am not quite sure how stupid the AP thinks we collectively are, but I think they think we’re pretty dumb.
For the AP to blame anything but a Senate filibuster on Republicans is just absolutely ridiculous. Today, they blamed “House Republicans” for blocking a bill that would delay the switchover to digital TV until June.
House Republicans succeeded in scuttling a bill to delay the transition, which is scheduled for Feb. 17, less than two days after the Senate unanimously passed the plan.
The defeat is a setback for the Obama administration and Democrats on Capitol Hill, who fear too many Americans are not ready for the switchover.
Republicans are a distinct minority in the US House. In the words of Prez-O, they “won”.
IT IS IMPOSSIBLE FOR THE HOUSE REPUBLICANS TO DO ANYTHING ON THEIR OWN. THEY ARE IN THE MINORITY. THEY COULDN’T DO IT OR BE BLAMED FOR IT IF THEY WANTED TO.
House Democrats scuttled this bill – make no bones about it. Period. End of story.
My God, the press is stupid.
