    1. [Democrat] President Obama will blame House Republican leader Eric Cantor for blocking his jobs package when he speaks later today in Mesquite, Texas
    Obama to blast Cantor for blocking jobs bill

    2.President Barack Obama has traveled the country to rally support for his jobs legislation and prodding Congress to take up the bill immediately.

    Senate Minority [Republican] Leader Mitch McConnell’s response? Sure.

    So...how long before President Obama's pic appears in the dictionary definition of incompetent?

    Have you not watched NBC News or read the NY Times lately?

    Obama is doing the best he can despite the resistance of the GOP.

    Sadly, most dont know the truth. Look at the Cantor thread. Most arent even aware that Reid cant muster up enough in his own party for the bill to be voted on.
    But it is Cantors fault.

    And the people believe it.

    Obama plays his supporters as the fools. I wonder what it is like to continually defend a man that sees you as a fool.

    Cantor is a Grade A douche bag. He won't consider the Presidents plan as a whole because "That is not what we need right now. We need to all pull together to ensure that we can produce a better environment for growth and job creation." Yet, I haven't seen him talk about any of his ideas for creating jobs. I guess by "all" he means everyone but himself.

    They don't see far enough. He's a good looking charismatic man who can speak well, and he had a decent enough shell game to win the Presidency. His issue is that he's been able to talk and charm his way for much of his life.

    But these are politicians. Both sides....

    It's not working on his side anymore, let alone working with the Reps.

    It's of course not up to Cantor whether the bill gets voted on or not. He has no power over that.
    Reid does have power over whether the bill gets voted on. And he isn't letting it happen.

    Idiots like you are why Obama is still in power and hasn't resigned in disgrace like he should.

    Sigh......... It's like you didn't even read the OP. Or maybe you did you just couldn’t help but make it about Evil Republicans, unable to see that Obama divides the country at every turn by trying to make it seem as if it's just Republicans that are holding up his Stimulus 2.0.

    "And the people believe it."

    I don't believe that that is the case: look at the polls.

    He is down in every constituent group.

    The only ones that believe him are the ones who have sworn
    C'est pour loiauté maintenir (To maintain loyalty)...

    ...like the brain surgeon under your post.

    Reid has said why he is delaying the vote. He feels there are more important issues in the Senate to deal with right this second.

    Cantor hasn't said jack. He just said he doesn't like Obama's plan. Period. He hasn't said why, he hasn't offered any plans of his own. He's just being a whiny baby, as usual.

    What issues does Reid feel are more important than the 9+% unemployment rate we have and the general state of the economy?
    So you agree Cantor isn't holding up Obama's plan. That's something.

    I did read the OP and I read the article. Which is where this gem is located: "President Obama needs to understand that his 'my way or the highway' approach simply isn't going to work in the House or the Democratic Senate"

    I call it a gem because the GOP hasn't said what their way is! They are offering nothing, and then complaining that Obama wants his plan passed. If you want compromise, GOP, you need to offer something first!
