In his booster-ish speech about how a Republican Congress would govern, Rep. John Boehner (R-Ohio) deployed a clever frame to make the financial reform bill passed by the House sound absolutely awful.

“Every Republican voted against [the Democrats'] TARP bailout,” said Boehner, “the permanent slush fund for politicians.”

The Republicans all voted against TARP?

Wasn't that the bank bailout proposed by Paulson under Bush?

Since the vote occurred in November of 2008 and was 74-25 in favor, the news I missed was (1) how the Dems lost so many seats in the 2008 elections while still winning the Presidency and (2) when Alexander, Bennett, Domenici, Ensign, McConnell, Murkowski, Grassley, Gregg, Bond (MO), Hagel, Hatch, Burr, Hutchinson, Isakson (GA), Smith (OR), Chambliss, Snowe, Kyl, Coburn, Stevens (Ted), Coleman, Sununu, Collins, Thune, Voinovich, Corker, Warner (VA), Cornyn, Lugar, Craig, Martinez (FL), and McCain switched parties.

At least I heard about Specter.
