    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 don稚 require congressional approval. .....On the first, he will propose legislation the White House admits Congress won稚 pass:

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

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

    的f 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.

    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, there痴 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 he痴 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.

    The president of pork,.
    All these critters know how to do is spend, spend and spend...
    they need to keep their greedy base fed

    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?

    Four boxes keep us free: the soap box, the ballot box, the jury box, and the cartridge box.

    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.
