In the beginning, main stream republicans were absolutely delighted to see the Tea Party members in US House of Representatives come in and do their dirty work for them by attacking President Obama.
The new Pit Bulls that older Republicans unleashed on President Obama are now biting their dog owners in the butt.
As we know when a dog owner instructs his/her dog to attack, the dog will not release its victim at the exact time the dog owner instructs it too.
So now that a few republican senators are getting close to reelection, they are trying to distance themselves from the new pit bulls that they ordered to attack the President.
These republicans want the two month payroll tax extension bill to pass because over the Christmas break they have to go home and face their constitutients and tell them why they voted to cut off their constitutients unemployment checks.
Their Pit Bulls in the US House of Representatives are simply staying with the program by doing as they had been instructed to do (stop President Obama at any cost, and by any means necessary).
Again, I repeat, now that some republican senators and republican house members are getting ready to began their reelection campaigns, they want their Pit Bulls to stop their Obama attack and pass the two month payroll tax cut extension bill!
However, the Pit Bulls are saying "you ordered me to attack President Obama and that's what I'm doing!"
