GOP Break Their "Pledge"

Someone in the Democratic Party still has some brains. As evidence, I give you this video from the Democratic rapid response effort on the GOP and their pledge.

That "We're not going to be any different from what we've been" line is really getting a lot of play lately. And it should, it's an extremely odd thing to say. Polling shows that Republicans are actually pretty unpopular and the only thing giving them an edge is the enthusiasm of Republican voters. What you really want to be doing now is giving Democrats and Independents a reason to stay home on election day, yet here Boehner is, basically saying, "We're going to keep being the dicks you don't like." You really have to wonder what the orange man was thinking.

In the end, it may be that the comment hurts the GOP more than the hypocrisy here. We'll have to see how it plays out.

While we're on the subject of Boehner, check out Tanya Somanader's post at Think Progress. Shorter version: Boehner admits the "pledge" offers no real solutions. Is he becoming gaffe-prone or was he always?
