Try inviting us next time first... Madame Speaker.
Senate Banking Committee Chairman Chris Dodd (D-Conn.) and House Financial Services Committee Chairman Barney Frank (D-Mass.) emerged from a half-hour meeting to sheepishly admit to reporters there had been a communication mix-up with the time and location.
"Apparently there was some confusion,” Dodd said. “We thought that an invitation had been extended to both the House and Senate Republicans, but for whatever reason we’re going to have to reschedule... We’ll just reconvene, and we’ll continue working."
I am getting thoroughly sick and tired of having my party be accused of the sins that actually lurk in the hearts of my political opponents.
