A slew of House Republicans thought to be contenders for higher office in 2012 voted against the tax package on Thursday.
Rehberg was one of them, and Rehberg’s vote against the recent spending package can be explained by these ambitions, because votes against the spending measure will likely be a positive with Tea Party activists and could help in a GOP primary against Daines or Hill.
But the question isn’t which office he’ll run for, what’s really puzzling is why some far-left liberals would rather fight the friends who disappoint them on occasion than focus on the enemies who want to destroy them. The right doesn’t do this. They just want to win. If actions are any indicator, some liberals just want to whine.
