Yesterday in Youngstown, President Obama went after “The Party of No”.
In a campaign stop promoting his economic efforts, Obama took swipes at what he called the “unified, determined opposition of one party.” He said it is not too late for bipartisanship and appealed for it — but not until after criticizing those he said were “rooting for failure.”
“If the just-say-no crowd had won out — if we had done things that way — we’d be in a deeper world of hurt,” Obama said in the swing state of Ohio, where the unemployment rate is close to 11 percent, above the high nationwide average of near 10 percent.
Republicans have no ideas? All we say is “no”?
The White House does have internet access, right?

Does that look like a Party of No?
Didn’t think so.
Instead, the President may want to shake a stick at his own allies in Congress.
After all, they’re the ones who won’t even be producing a budget this year.
Yesterday, House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD) announced that, for the first time since 1974, the House will not pass a budget resolution this year. Since the Budget Act of 1974, Congress has been unable to conference a budget resolution only four times: in 1998, 2002, 2004, and 2006. But in every one of these years, the House fulfilled its obligation to American taxpayers to create a budget. This year, however, this will not be the case.
Without a House budget, no final and binding budget can be enacted.
Democrats. The real Party of No.
