Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

Senate unanimously rejects Obama budget

Harry Reid said last week that the Senate Dems will not be presenting a budget for 2012, meaning that for the second year in a row, they refuse to do their lavishly-funded jobs.  Apparently, Reid is insistent that no Democrat budget gets passed…including his own president’s:

The Senate voted unanimously on Wednesday to reject a $3.7 trillion budget plan that President Obama sent to Capitol Hill in February.

Ninety-seven senators voted against a motion to take it up.

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.

Is that right?  Well that’s odd, since Reid said there will be NO Dem budget in the Senate.  If there’s no budget that will see the light of day, then how can the Dems claim they only voted down ObaMao’s budget because of another budget that they…uh…won’t be voting on?  Huh?

By the way, the MSM narrative has been that the Paul Ryan budget that was passed by the House was rejected in the Senate by a vote of 57-40, with five Republicans voting “No” with the Dems.  The MSM hasn’t focused nearly the same amount on the 53 Dems who rejected the Obama budget.  Because in MSM math, “5 GOP > 53 Dem” in newsworthiness.

Exit question: Will race-baiting black Congressman James Clyburn (D-SC) accuse Reid and the other 52 Senate Democrats of opposing Obama’s budget because they’re racist?  I dunno.

  1. It’s time to take notice now. Who were the 5 republicans?

  2. The Maine sisters (Snowe and Collins), Scott Brown (MA), Lisa “Write-In” Murkowski (AK), and Rand Paul (KY). Paul’s was kind of silly, because he had his own proposal that went farther than Ryan’s plan, so he voted “No” on Ryan’s in order to advance his own. A silly vote, but at least for somewhat reasonable reasons.

  4. Of course Clyburn will play the race card, it’s the only card the guy knows how to play. Everything is race to him. Somehow he’ll find a way to spin it racially.

  5. How long will the “black” folks buy the race card? Are most of them really that stupid that they would vote their own financial demise?
    The conservatives could use the Senate vote on ObaMao’s budget as a talking point in campaigns, along with his dismal record as a president.
    Silly liberals, their time is up unless they cheat. And, they will cheat to win. Guaranteed, unless we stop them dead in their tracks.

  6. Democrats unanimously vote down Obama’s budget? Pass the popcorn! The GOP’s 2012 campaign commercials are practically writing themselves.

  7. The problem lies not only with black folks but the uneducated public as a whole, they seriously think that the US Government MAKES money. They are convinced that there is an unlimited pot of cash in DC and the Republicans want to keep it all for the “rich man”.

    What we really need is a Constitutional Amendment that ONLY taxpaying citizens are allowed to vote.

    What other organization in the world allows someone to vote who hasn’t paid their dues???

    I suppose I can expect a knock on my door by the Thought Police for writing something so outrageous. (Damn, they probably even know how I feel about illegal aliens and their “right to vote”.)
