Annals of Chutzpah

The classic definition of chutzpah is the man on trial for murdering his parents begging for mercy because he’s an orphan. According to Greg Sargent, the GOP is coming up with a similar strategy to defeat President Obama:

[A]fter doing everything in their power to prevent Obama from successfully transcending partisanship and achieving transformative change — even if it meant repeatedly opposing solutions to profound national problems they once embraced — Republicans will now attack him for failing to transcend partisanship and achieve transformative change.

That makes perfect GOP sense.
