What a POgarbage this guy is.
Obama is wasting everybody's time trying to blame Republicans for the lack of passage of his bill. Somehow he really believes this is a valid campaign trick for next year. He really is stupid enough to believe that he can make people believe that it is the fault of the Republicans. What he wants is to be able to blame the Republicans in the House for the non-passage. This is nothing but campaign crap.

This is the main reason all of them refuse to go along. Too many Dems are going to have to run and they want to win, and know they can't if they vote for this thing.

The Dems got hurt bad in the House last year.
More frivolous spending and the Dems will get hurt in Congress next year.

The Dems in Congress aren't that stupid. They saw what happened in WI and in the House.

Odd that someone would equate asking for reasons as the sign of a dictatorship.
Don't dictators just do whatever, no questions asked?
I agree 100% with the bold.
The dictator part??? Is he asking for reasons or attempting to create a talking point?
I find it odd that the same folks demanding an explanation for voting against a bill that is questionable at best were the same folks excusing $432,000.00 trip to Africa saying its always been this way.
Does Mrs. Obama need 24 staffers? I dont know.
I think given the shape the nations in that we should be questioning every dollar our gov spends. Just because they promise a lot in this bill doesn't mean that it will deliver. 1 trillion hardly lived up to the hype.

I was really getting afraid that Valerie Jarrett might get left out and everybody knows that she has called many shots for Obama all along.

Yep; it's always someone else's fault--I'm a Harvard grad, and I'm smarter than all of you.

It didn't work for Tricky Dick in the seventies, either.
