That’ll be the White House spin on this:

Despite a campaign-style push this week by President Barack Obama, the Senate on Thursday scuttled pared-back jobs legislation aimed at helping state and local governments avoid layoffs of teachers and firefighters.

Obama’s three-day bus tour through North Carolina and Virginia — states crucial to his re-election race next year — didn’t change any minds among Senate Republicans, who filibustered Obama’s latest jobs measure to death just as they killed his broader $447 billion jobs plan last week.

This means that Joe Biden’s BS is going to be insufferable today. I’m sure this will mean yet another taxpayer-funded campaign-style “bus tour” for Obama. And that one guy who clapped for it the other day is really going to be upset.

I do think that the Republicans need to do a little better job of pointing out why the entire premise of these “jobs bills” is counterproductive to economic recovery, and remind people constantly that these same people just put the US a trillion in the hole for a “stimulus” that did little except put the US another trillion in the hole. Most people get it, but it can’t hurt to keep hammering on that point.

    Next week: "If the Republicans don't pass my Jobs Bill, the seas will turn to blood, the first born sons in every family will die, and the sun will go Super Nova!"

    If states (or the fed) cannot balance their budgets, the first jobs cut should be the legislators. That should be incentive enough to live within their meansl.

    "that these same people just put the US a trillion in the hole for a “stimulus” that did little except put the US another trillion in the hole."

    That I won't be paying. Nor should you. I'm not advocating a Taxpayers 'strike' but each of us will need to adjust our Income, dividends and ret. planning to such a finely honed degree it won't be funny.

    OWS/inner city saltwater crab lovers can be as non-productive as they WANT but when the small biz community digs in its heels we're Going Galt. Well, whatever. I'm already seeing signs of biz owners either filing extensions or simply not filing at all.

    Make only what you need.

    For that really stupid statement, I suggest that Joe should take a few billion out of his offshore accounts and buy every single female that lives in America their very own, 44 magnum. It's the least he can do, since it's his party that has forced rapiest to ramp up their "attacks."

    How, absurd.
