No Respect


In yesterday's news,  a political nothing, a nobody, shows that he can poll almost equal with the President.

In the President's own party primary.

It didn't get any better today.

The WashTimes relates how Obama now has the budget blues, again from his own party.
President Obama's budget suffered a second embarrassing defeat Wednesday, when senators voted 99-0 to reject it.

Coupled with the House's rejection in March, 414-0, that means Mr. Obama's budget has failed to win a single vote in support this year.

Republicans forced the vote by offering the president's plan on the Senate floor.

Democrats disputed that it was actually the president's plan, arguing that the slim amendment didn't actually match Mr. Obama's budget document, which ran thousands of pages. But Republicans said they used all of the president's numbers in the proposal, so it faithfully represented his plan.

Sen. Jeff Sessions, Alabama Republican, even challenged Democrats to point out any errors in the numbers and he would correct them — a challenge no Democrats took up.

Poor old Barack and Michelle may end up retiring to Kenya, bitter, eating dog and bad mouthing the country.

The democrats elected a political, intellectual and moral nothing 4-years ago, so Arkansas voters and just following a precedent.

Does America have a No Confidence vote? If so, why not use it?

LL - I'd like to see them retire to an 8x8 chainlink cell in Gitmo - for life.

Silverfiddle - independents had a hand in that also - as well as establishment Republicans who put a RINO on the ballot. I guess there is more than enough blame to pass around on that lying POS in the WH.

Ian - I think only parlimentarian forms of gov't have that, like the Brits.
