Apparently, Senate Democrats Don’t Love Obama – They Won’t Pass His Bill

From The Hill.com, written by John Bennett:

“The Senate likely will not take up President Obama’s plan to create jobs until next month following a planned recess period, the No. 2 Democrat in the chamber said Sunday.

Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) said the Senate would focus on a number of “related issues” to the $400 billion job-creation legislation this week. But he quickly noted on CNN that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) has placed the massive jobs bill “on the calendar.”

The Senate is slated to be in recess Sept. 26-30, returning for legislative business on Oct. 3.

Some debate on the measure could begin “this week,” Durbin said. The legislation “is ready,” he said, “and poised.”

“But it’s more realistic it’d be next month,” Durbin said.”

While Obama is running around the country bleating about Stimulus 2.0, the Democrats in the Senate are…I guess…being obstructionist? The news media is too willfully ignorant or in the bag for Obama to even pay attention to the little detail that Harry Reid has postponed action on the bill for weeks.

This is a little inconvenient for a White House who are looking more and more like the little man behind the curtain instead of the great and powerful Oz, and awfully inconvenient for those in the media trying valiantly to carry water for their messiah.

Yep. Just heard a news broadcast on the radio that Dear Leader will unveil his plan today to repeal those rotten ‘Bush-tax-cuts-for-the-wealthy’, like it was one long word. The same tax ‘cuts’ we had to keep 9 months ago because the economy was so bad. Guess the economy has fully recovered since the first of the year…Idiots!

Kinda once again puts the lie to the (redacted) and moaning from the epically small Bill Keller, doesn’t it?

Jack, I have wondered if perhaps Dems in the Senate may have delayed vote on this bill to see if Obama can regain any control over the narrative during his jaunt around the countryside.

His favorables have been declining. Dems know that association with teh One will hurt them in 2012. It would just seem to me to be a somewhat rational choice to make to wait and see what the polls do while he’s gallavanting around before trying to get this bill passed.
