President Obama said Monday that Republican and Democratic governors across the country want "swift action" on an economic stimulus plan, urging Washington lawmakers not to let "modest differences" stall the package.
Yeah, Mr. Obama, we have modest differences on the "stimulus package". Each one is small--it's just that there are 800-and-something BILLION of them!
Is the guy this naive or does he think he is such a smooth talker that he can grease this thing through?
Note to the Senate Republicans--you may lose this thing, but you bloody better well go down fighting. Otherwise, you might just get to kiss your party goodbye. And for you Blue Dog Democrats--how badly do you want to be reelected? You ran as conservatives, and you'd be well-advised to act like you are.
