Spin Part II: Still Going to Blame the Democrats, Kristi?

I posted earlier that the GOP and Kristi Noem felt that she needed to blame the Democrats because the GOP controlled House couldn't pass a farm bill.  Now it seems that trying an even more radical approach is doomed to fail.  Some GOP are saying that we should pass only the farm subsidies and take out the food stamps part, but the far right is still not buying it.

“The purpose of splitting the agriculture and nutrition pieces was to change the political dynamics that conspire to prevent true reform,” read the letter, which was signed by notable conservatives including Grover Norquist of Americans for Tax Reform, Chris Chocola of Club for Growth and Ryan Alexander of Taxpayers for Common Sense. “If the House pushes through agriculture-only language taken directly from the combined bill that failed on the floor last month without amendment, it will not only fail to change those dynamics, it will actively preserve them.”

Still want to blame the Democrats?
