Maybe Obama Doesn't Understand His Party Controls the Senate

A sure-fire way to win over support for your tax increase plan. Insulting the people you need supporting it.
President Obama launched a three-day bus tour through two states critical to his 2012 reelection campaign by kicking Senate Republicans for blocking his jobs bill, saying he is breaking up his plan because "maybe they just couldn't understand the whole thing at once."

Speaking in Asheville, N.C., Obama challenged Congress to pass his $447 billion jobs bill in "bite-sized pieces," stating with legislation to provide funding to cash-starved states to pay for teachers, police officers and firefighters.

The president said that in blocking his bill, Senate Republicans — he did not mention the two Democratic 'no' votes — "said 'no' to you."
Bite-sized pieces, huh? Funny, but last month David Axelrod said quite the opposite.
The White House won’t accept an “a la carte menu” approach by Congress to President Barack Obama’s jobs bill, top strategist David Axelrod said Tuesday.
I guess the “a la carte menu” is now offering bite-sized pieces.

Whatever the case, the public wants no part of it, so you know what you can do with your bite-sized pieces, champ.

Republicans are blocking his bill?

Gosh, wasn't it a House Republican who submitted the Obama bill? And a Senate Republican who tried to attach it as an amendment to another bill?
