    With the upcoming presidential election a little more than a year away,Will the republicans play party politics with President Obama's job plan and the American economy? When the Israeli prime minister spoke before congress in May congress had no problem offering up 29 standing ovations.While president Obama gave his points on his jobs plan it looked like a few republicans needed to be checked for a pulse. Here it comes, the case of sour grapes.

      No doubt. But they will be hard pressed not to support Obama's tax cut proposal.

      Republicans have worked to make sure nothing good happened during the Obama administration - their reward will be that stupid people will elect them to office - our reward will be no change in washington.  They are all bought and paid for by special interests so what we want does not matter.

        during Ob ama's first two years congress was controlled by democrats and everything he wanted passed so saying republicans have prevented him from doing anything is false

          From the Economist.....a right-leaning rag.

          "For two years the Democrats controlled both ends of Pennsylvania Avenue. That did not give Mr Obama the power to enact every measure he wanted (an energy bill and immigration reform were two that fell by the wayside), but the 111th Congress was indeed extremely busy."

          You are exagerating....something I am called out for all the time. Histrionics they call it when I do it.

          geuss they'll give you a pass.......cause they always do!

    Yes, they have more respect and loyalty to Bibiguns than they do Obama.
    There's a word for that.
    And of course they will play politics....it's all they ever do.

    Here's how it will go....again.

    "Obama has no idea what he is doing. We have he plan. Cut taxes for the Rich. End of story."

    They're soooo close they can almost taste it.
    4 hard years of chanting, "No, no, no!"
    4 hard years of turning a completely blind eye to the plight of the average American.
    Eyes on the prize. Make Obama a one-term president. At ANY cost.
    They will continue to hold our economy hostage as long as it takes to get BHO out so they can REALLY control the economy!
