    Wrong again. I'm not surprised you have to imagine that others have said something in order to have an argument. The fact remains, there is nothing hypocritical about the dems sometimes opposing spending and sometimes supporting it, depending on the circumstances, because that's consistent with their ideology

    The repubs, on the other hand, say they are ideologically opposed to increase spending, but when they are in control, they have always increased spending. That is hypocritical

    Still think people will just read the link headline without reading the story I see:

    "Democratic aides said ahead of the vote that the Democratic caucus would not support the plan because it has been supplanted by the deficit-reduction plan Obama outlined at a speech at George Washington University in April."

    This is the $4 trillion deficit reduction plan that the GOP walked away from because it included raising taxes on their wealthy clients by a few percentage points.

    If Obama wants to get his budget, passed, he needs to do it the Chicago way.

    Just call Boehner into a closed meeting, and say "unless you vote on my budget, I will implement one or more Security Council Resolutions regarding Israel's illegal settlements, using the military."

    If Boehner goes public w/that threat, just deny ever having made it, and accuse him of making "reckless, baseless accusations" and "playing politics."

    Then just sit back and watch the GOP shine your shoes (compliments of AIPAC)

    Re: McConnell Offers 'Backup' US Debt Limit Plan

    supplanted?

    LOL!

    the president's written budget, submitted to congress on february 14, was supplanted two months later by a STUMP SPEECH at gwu on april 13 in which barack the slasher hussein attempted to TAKE IT ALL BACK

    yup, that's exactly what the links all say

    hey, i wonder why kent conrad has still failed to WRITE UP all that pretty NEW rhetoric the slasher has been stumping since that humiliating retrenchment at gwu

    the only budget submitted by this white house to this or the last congress in 3 years was defeated in the united states senate, controlled by the president's own party, 97 to 0

    President's budget sinks, 97-0 - TheHill.com

    how embarrassing

    leadership, anyone?

    You can continue to delude yourself if you wish, however, this is what's on the table to reduce the deficit:

    Maybe the republicans can just give the president unlimited power to enact whatever he wants. Then, they can vote it up or down, and he can choose to veto or accept their vote. That way, things can get done and if it works out they can say, "See we took over Congress and it all worked out." And if it doesn't work out they can reply, "It was all that Obama guy!!!"

    Cowards.
