    Alabama Republican Senator Jeff Sessions is apparently a psychic.

    Before President Obama has even released the details in his jobs bill, let alone given the speech (scheduled for Thursday) outlining the plan, Sessions is already against it.

    I understand that the Republican reading of the Constitution means that Barack Obama is only three-fifths of a President. But this time, their hatred and opposition to anything and everything related to Barack Obama has gone too far.

    Sessions, who, along with the rest of the Republican Party, squandered the budget surplus left behind by President Clinton, watched the debt grow immensely after President Bush cut taxes for billionaires and put two wars (one in Afghanistan and one for "funsies" in Iraq) on the national credit card. He is now allegedly concerned about debt...that he created but is somehow, magically Obama's fault.

    We don't know what in it, but we know it costs $300B.

    Last time I checked the cost was part of the bill that one could criticize.

    Perhaps you would like to share how Obama plans to pay for this bill? What is he going to cut from the budget? Oh wait, dont we need a budget first?

    Haven't you gotten with the time? ALL of Obamas speeches are self serving and hollow rhetoric. NOTHING MORE

    Oh yes we do--the White House has been mentioning parts of his plan since this last weekend--and it results in more spending and more road and bridge work.

    And you won't

    Anything the House passed is sitting on Reids desk over at the Senate gathering dust.

    Obama has never seen a job that he did like if he could find someone else to pay for it. He doesn't understand and small business create most of the job and they are scared to death of him. He is pandering to the Union, only 8% of the work force. Ever been in a Union plant, I have and hustle is not something you are going to see. They are overpaid and lazy, just like Obama.

    That's because people in Congress realize you can't just legislate jobs into existance.
