commentary on Politics and a little bit of everything else

Is President Obama playing Defense when he should be leading the Offense?


Talkandpolitics has been on this for a quite a while about Obama….

The man simply waits on almost every issue until he see’s how the cards fall….

Then he acts…..

This is not new for him…

He did this when he served in the Illinois legislature….

Preferring to abstain from votes in order to not get go on record  with his views or stance…


We now find ourselves in a situation where the Republicans , embolden by the recent Mid-Term results in the House are calling the shots…..

While the Democrats scramble to get their point across…

Now I know Boehner is the Speaker of the House so money bills come from him first…

And I know he’s got a solid majority….


But when was the last time you heard Harry Reid or Nancy Pelosi mentioned up on Capital Hill?

Vice President Biden…Who is the lead for the White House Budget talks…Is schudeled to go on the road after next week…

Does he go?

If so….

We know Obama isn’t gonna step in….


So here we are waiting to see WTF is gonna happen….


The President…Who IS a Democrat…

Seems to be playing a GOP song…

Coming out for more budget cuts….

Strangely silent on the Labor battle in Wisconsin after endorsing it…

And doing absolutely nothing while the country fumes over a rise in gas princes that has nothing to do with current supply levels….


I keep defending President  Obama because even after this he’ll somehow find a way to come out on top…

I know he will….

But frankly….

Talkandpolitics does a have a point…

The guy just doesn’t lead…

He just jumps in at the last minute to do a deal most of the time it seems….

That’s who he is…..

As in when he plays ‘hoops’….

A Defensive player……

Who remarkily wins…..

Democratic Wisconsin State Senators will return to vote on Governor Walker’s Law….

Their hope with returning and the Governore’s union busting law passing is that the Wisconsin Governor has dug himself into a deep enough hole that he’ll hurt himself  and come up for recall…and that he will lit a fire under labor and Democrats at home and around the country…..

We’ll see….

The Wisconsin Governor can see he won this, eh?

Democratic Sen. Mark Miller said the Democrats intend to let the full Senate vote and potentially pass Gov. Scott Walker’s “budget-repair” bill, which would also limit public unions’ collective bargaining rights. The Democrats believe that the measure lacks voter support based on recent polls and that passage could hurt Republicans politically, Mr. Miller said.

He said the Democrats, who fled to Illinois on Feb. 17, also want to fight Mr. Walker’s recently announced two-year budget plan, which cuts spending by $4.2 billion, or 6.7%, including $1.25 billion less in state aid to schools and local governments.

“We are now looking at returning to the state capitol and requiring the senators to take a vote and have them declare who they’re with — the workers or the governor,” Mr. Miller said Sunday. He said he thinks recent polls have been “disastrous” for Mr. Walker and give Democrats more leverage to seek budget changes.

Chris Schrimpf, a spokesman for the governor, said, “If the governor made his decisions based on polling, he would still be in the general assembly. The voters elected people to make the difficult decisions to balance the budget and create an environment where 250,000 jobs can be created by the private sector.”
