The White House is acting like it was surprised or something. The Senate had made it pretty clear that it wouldn’t go along with the president on letting the Saudis off the hook. It’s not like it was down to 1 or 2 votes or something.
Lame duckhood has got to be painful. The president didn’t get to nominate someone for the most recent Supreme Court vacancy and now this very public dissing from Congress.
The page is turning in Washington.
