Blunt Expresses Frustration With White House

Republican leaders are expressing frustration the Bush administration for failing to tell Congress about the bailout of American International Group.

That includes Ozarks Congressman Roy Blunt. The Wall Street Journal included this quote from Blunt: "It’s time for them to share a whole lot more information with Congress on what they’re doing, how they’re doing it, and what they’ll do in the future" Blunt of Missouri told reporters Wednesday, noting that the rank and file “don’t understand the coherent strategy if there is one.”

Then, there's this from The Hill:

"Minority Whip Roy Blunt (Mo.) and Republican Conference Chairman Adam Putnam (Fla.) on Tuesday also expressed frustration with the lack of communication from the White House. Blunt told reporters that Republicans were unclear what the "coherent strategy" was regarding which financial entities merited a bailout and which do not."

As an independent, I would have a hard time finding anyone more phoney than Roy Blunt. He has carried Bush's water for 8 years and now that Bush is unpopular he is disapointed? Just how stupid does he think we are?
