Boehner and Cantor are in charge of the House. If earmarks are passed it's because Boehner and Cantor passed legislation with earmarks in them. If Republicans really disapprove of earmarks they can refuse to pass legislation with earmarks onto the President's desk for his signature, nobody is stopping them. They have nobody to blame but themselves. They are not doing what they are saying, and therefore are not meaning what they are saying. It doesn't make sense that they would blame the President for signing legislation with earmarks when they passed the legislation first themselves. But, then, it doesn't matter that it doesn't make sense. Republicans don't have to make sense. Obama is to blame for what Republicans destroy, Democrats will be punished for what Republicans do.
