    Instead of staying in DC and meeting with the heads of both congressional parties trying to hammer out a deal to get his plan passed he is off running around the country "trying to sell it to the people". It seems to me that those Union workers gathered at his "campaign stops" don't actually have a vote in congress. Odd thing is, John Boehner does. Maybe someone should tell Obama how to work with congress instead of galavanting around trying to demonize them.

    Obama also has created a new definition bipartisan. We used to think bipartisanship was republicans working together to craft legislation. Now it's democrats leaving republicans out of the process, and then complaining that the bills they unilaterally pass have to many conservative ideas.


    edit: ala this Bob Dole bill sucks.

    So it was good when George W. Bush did it, but bad when Barack Obama does it.

    Got it.

    In any case..he's using ideas Republicans use to support.

    I think Barry cares about the jobs bill all right but only in the context of re-election.

    He surely knows that 2012 is going to be all about the economy.

    If the economy and UE are still in the toilet he will not get that second term.

    So, yeah. he cares.

    It's obvious, I mean he lost the raise taxes debate so many times already.

    He's only having townhalls in swing states promoting this bill.

    I wish liberals would admit this is a political stunt.
