Today the US Senate democrats see picture) had some of their minions defect to the right and voted against bringing a close to a filibuster to allow a\Obama's ridiculous political ploy to see the light of day. The vote was 50-49 so the fawning press will have to figure a different way to spin the defeat. We all knew the "jobs" bill was a joke didn't we?
HERE is the CNN spin on the debate in the Senate. What is fascinating to me is the lack of Harry Reid's understanding of the US Constitution. All bills with money must originate in the House yet Reid tried to bend the law to accommodate Obama. All the jobs ploy accomplished was ZIP, ZERO, NADA! Harry Reid's state of Nevada has the highest unemployment and home foreclosures in the country and the best Harry could do was, well, NOTHING! While America is hurting under huge debt, deficits and over-regulation, the democrats, led by Obama, Reid and Pelosi, play political games while the country burns. Obama is now saying he will break up the phony jobs bill into parts and try to get his way in a different strategy.
That is what makes Obama a unique President. When he fails, he doubles down to fail twice a bad. Now there is way of looking at things I have not seen much of in my life or in America for that matter. When something doesn't work, that usually tells a thinking person to try something that will have a better chance at success. Obama and the democrats simply pile on more crap rather than change direction to success. Is it any wonder they are failing and hopefully they will be booted in November 2012.
Interestingly, Republican Senate leader Mitch McConnell asked Harry Reid to allow a up or down vote on the full Obama "jobs" bill, but Reid would not allow it. What a strategy eh? Democrats are simply stupid in many ways.
