I recently noted that it was strange that Obama didn't even consult with Congressional Democrats before he took to his perpetual road show of demanding Congress pass his jobs bill. In every speech, he whines: "What are they waiting for?" Well, it looks like the Democrats aren't so ready to fall on their sword for this turkey. Ace of Spades "Dick Durbin: We don't have the votes to pass this phony jobs bill"
This is the thing that confuses me about bull--- legislative proposals that have no meaning except to act like you're doing something because you're tanking in the polls: Don't you need your party, who still hold a majority in the Senate, to kinda act like they'll go along with this? Wouldn't that be kind of a big deal? I mean, to look serious and all.That's Obama for you: he can't even fake sincerity well.
