Day By Day by Chris Muir

Well, Kentucky is a “RED STATE” and the home of newly re-elected GOP Senate Minority Leader, Mitch McConnell who will lead the efforts against Obam’a Economic Stimulus Bill – so, pffffft.

Flap thought President Obama was from Chicagoland anyway? Certainly, not 80 degrees this time of the year.

On the other hand, Southern California (where Flap lives) will be 80 degrees today.

Barack Obama’s Biggest Problem: The Democratic Party

GOP Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell on The Today Show

In the wishful thinking department Senator Mitch McConnell points out to the President who his friends really are.

“Frankly, what’s developing here is his biggest problem is with his own party, the Democratic Party, which seems to be drifting away from what he said he wanted, which was for the package to include at least 40 percent tax relief and to be earmark-free.”

“So he could, ironically, end up with better supporters in trying to achieve the kind of stimulus package—which would be timely, targeted and temporary— from us than he’s getting from the Democratic majority, at least so far here in the Congress.”

“Listening to what he said he wanted, we think we may be closer to that, oddly enough, than the Democratic majority, which seems to be pulling in the direction of fewer tax — less tax relief and things like fixing up the [National] Mall. You know, most people don’t think that’s the way we ought to spend stimulus money.”

Obama heads to Capitol Hill today to address GOP lawmakers. Let’s see if Obama shows them some post-partisan love or reminds them that he “WON.”

No GOP Roll Over Beethoven for Democrat/Obama Economic Stimulus Package

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell speaks during a press conference on Capitol Hill in November 2008 in Washington, DC.

Looks like “The Idiot of the Highest Order”, Senate GOP Minority Leader Mitch McConnell is finally growing a pair.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) voiced skepticism today about the emerging economic stimulus plan, applying a brake to Democratic plans to quickly pass up to $850 billion in spending and tax cuts soon after President-elect Barack Obama’s Jan. 20 inauguration.

“As of right now, Americans are left with more questions than answers about this unprecedented government spending, and I believe the taxpayers deserve to know a lot more about where it will be spent before we consider passing it,” McConnell said in a statement, which will be publicly issued later today.

No more bailouts until there is a clear outline as to the Obama economic plan and the Congress decides what the hell it is doing besides throwing cheap money at a perceived problem.

41 votes go a long way, now don’t they?
