""We fought the good fight," Republican House Speaker John Boehner said in an interview with an Ohio radio station. "We just didn't win.""

The idea that it's all about winning, rather than actually about doing what is good for the people. This whole crisis cost the US about $24 billion, and seems to have been done by the Republicans just so they could "win".
Update: Richard right: Yes, and there are even those who have answered this question in such a manner and don't understand the irony of it all.
