James Inhofe’s view that the way for the GOP to make political gains is to "stall" or "block" health care changes isn’t quite as zingy as Jim DeMint’s "Waterloo" line, but the White House still seems likely to get a couple of days out of it.
Emanuel shrugged off Sen. Jim DeMint’s (R-S.C.) comments Wednesday that health care is Obama’s "Waterloo" and remarks Thursday by Sen. James Inhofe (R-OK) that Republicans are plotting the bill’s demise on a "week by week" basis.
"At least they’re honest about their motivation. Their view about health care is about defeating President Obama," he said. "Politically, I actually appreciate what they said."
