Losing Support, Hastert the Weak Caves on Patriot Act.

Another sign of disarray among the GOP House ranks, Denny "J. Dennis" Hastert waited a full day after the White House and Senate Republicans announced their agreement on changes in the Patriot Act before giving it his blessing for the House.

If anyone needs more proof of disarray and weakness among Republicans, I don't know what it form it would come in to make it any clearer.

No, Hastert does this sort of thing on purpose.

That way he can say he "doesn't always agree with the president" (even though he is W's biggest cheerleader and single-handedly responsible for ramming through more legislation that no one but the president wants than probably any Speaker in history.

And now watch for the stuff that gets "accidentally" attached to it behind everyone's backs. Oops!
