Welcome to the club…

Things are getting nasty, and it’s not us Wascally Wepublicans…

House healthcare negotiations dissolved in acrimony on Friday, with Blue Dog Democrats saying they were “lied” to by their Democratic leaders.

The seven Blue Dogs on the Energy and Commerce Committee stormed out of a Friday meeting with their committee chairman, Henry Waxman (D-Calif.), saying Waxman had been negotiating in bad faith over a number of provisions Blue Dogs demanded be changed in the stalled healthcare bill.

“I’ve been lied to,” Blue Dog Coalition Co-Chairman Charlie Melancon (D-La.) said on Friday. “We have not had legitimate negotiations.

“Mr. Waxman has decided to sever discussions with the Blue Dogs who are trying to make this bill work for America,” Melancon said.

Although those Blue Dogs were supposed to be headed back into another meeting of the Energy and Commerce Democrats, their anger was visible.

    BULLETIN — OUSTED HONDURAN PRESIDENT ZELAYA CROSSES THE BORDER FROM NICARAGUA AND RE-ENTERS HIS COUNTRY, IS NOW AT RISK OF ARREST.

  2. To comment on the subject of the article, when dealing with Democrat politicians, “lied to” would seem to be the expected result.

  3. He crossed right back into Nicaragua. It was all a show, rather childish on his part. In fact, the Honduran government basically laughed at it. Surprisingly, Clinton labeled it “reckless.” Zelaya now claims he will return to the negotiating table. I think someone in Venezuela will be pissed off. Interesting to see what happens, but the decent Hondurans may have won out.

  4. Holy crap, what does that have to do with the Democrats eating each other over Obamacare?

    It’s Drill’s fault.

  5. Sorry, Mambí.

    Didn’t have a “key” to the back door to make an actual “post” of the breaking news, so I broke in through this window.

    Call the Cambridge police … I have I.D. @ ready.

  6. Drill; you’re a gas. I’ll call them only if you promise to tell them to have “their momma” check your ID…:)
