Ezra Klein points out that the Republicans are continuing their run as the Party of No. Even policies they used to support, they now unanimously oppose apparently for the simple reason that Obama supports them:
A few years ago, cap-and-trade was, if not a consensus position in the Republican Party, then at least one with substantial support. John McCain had his own plan — a plan he continued to promote through the 2008 election — and he wasn’t, by any means, fighting a lonely battle. In fact, one of his co-sponsors was then-Sen. Barack Obama. In the states, a number of Republican governors were also pursuing cap-and-trade plans, including Tim Pawlenty, who’s now running for president and has denounced his efforts to fight climate change as a terrible mistake.
When Obama went on TV to encourage students to study hard and get good grades, Republicans opposed that. I’m waiting for Obama to say he likes apple pie, just to see what happens.
