Obama To Speak Soon On Failure

What a refreshing departure to have the president finally talking about a subject that he knows something about.

Constant campaign mode. Get ready for a condescending lecture disguised as a press conference.

Amazing how when it’s a few republicans voting with dems it’s a ‘bipartisan’ vote and when it’s a few dems voting with republican’s it’s a ‘mostly party line vote’.

Go ahead and whine about it, you filthy communist! Patriots from coast to coast are laughing at you.

This was just an amendment to S.649 that went down in flames. When is the main body of the bill coming up for a vote?

Seems to me if Dems voted with Repubs, it was a bipartisan vote.
