Most of the story is filled with the standard tsk-tsking of those obstructionist Republicans, and in fact is more blatant in this regard than usual.

But buried late in the article is a window into the two-part strategy the president will deploy at the speech: blame his captive audience, then announce he will be enacting policies that donít require congressional approval. .....On the first, he will propose legislation the White House admits Congress wonít pass:

That sets up an opportunity, as Democrats see it, to saddle Republicans with the blame for a weak economy.

ďThe president wants to work with Republicans and Democrats to create jobs and grow the economy,Ē said Dan Pfeiffer, the White House communications director.

ďIf nothing happens, it will be because Republicans in Congress made a conscious decision to do nothing. And that is a choice that will have tremendous consequences for the country.Ē

Mr. Obama also will propose added spending that Republicans are even more certain to oppose.

So Obama has scheduled a Joint Session of Congress to propose two kinds of plans: spending the Republicans oppose, and spending the Republicans really, really oppose. But wait, thereís a third:

To hold down overall federal costs, and to avoid having to go to Congress, Mr. Obama and his advisers have been looking for ways to divert existing government money to purposes that will create jobs, especially in the hard-hit construction industry.

Obama is expected to argue that to the extent that states and local governments are relieved of school construction costs, they must avoid further layoffs of teachers.

So heís not going to go through Congress anyway. He has no plans to get anything passed in the legislature, he just wants to slam Republicans while the public is watching.

Has anybody been keeping an eye on all those czars working under the radar? What have they been doing while hussein's been giving all of these distracting "blame-the-Republican" campaign speeches?

The Repubs need to start whipping out tax reform and spending bills that pass the House which will not be passed by the Senate and then do a massive advertising campaign of blame the Democrats for obstruction. Two can play that game but it looks like the Repubs are too stupid.
