So much for the much-feared One-party rule that McCain and Palin fomented fear about (well, tried to foment).
Senate Allies Fault Obama on Stimulus Democrats are criticizing Obama's plan to include tax cuts in his stimulus package.
President-elect Barack Obama’s economic recovery plan ran into crossfire from his own party in Congress on Thursday, suggesting that quick passage of spending programs and tax cuts could require more time and negotiation than Democrats once hoped.
Again, he is still not even President, yet, and already his own party is criticizing him. This after the lame show that Harry Reid put on about seating Roland Burris, first declaring there was no way he'd get seated, no way anyone nominated by Blagojevic, then saying that Burris was a nice way and might just get seated, if he met all required conditions, undermined by Senator Feinstein declaring Burris okay with her (she who concurrently complained of not being consulted about Leon Paneta being nominated to head CIA).
Democrats always manage to find a way to muck things up when they are in power.
Senate Democrats complained that major components of his plan were not bold enough and urged more focus on creating jobs and rebuilding the nation’s energy infrastructure rather than cutting taxes.
Imagine Senate Democrats complaining of someone not being bold enough; staggers the imagination.
