Safe Mode: On
The Left's Nervous Breakdown

By JAMES TARANTO

The White House is "bracing for the defeat of President Obama's jobs bill," the Hill reports. That's hardly surprising, since Republicans control the House--except that it is the Senate, where Democrats hold a majority, that is expected to vote down the $447 billion Stimulus Jr. plan.

Unnamed White House officials "emphasized their view that it is Republicans who are holding up the . . . plan, and they downplayed Democratic defections," the report adds. "And officials warned that Republican presidential candidates who follow the lead of Congress . . . will be painted with the same brush as a GOP Congress that voted against the jobs bill at a critical time."

    • @marc1921 For what it's worth, every Democrat I know personally says they'd never vote for Obama again. Tought admission, I'll bet. Of course that doesn't mean they'd switching sides, but if that sentiment is as widespread as I suspect, Obama's a one=term prez.

  • I think this part is right on the money."The left got what it wanted in 2008: a liberal president with a sweeping agenda and big Democratic majorities capable of enacting it. The result has been a great and failed experiment in progressive politics and governance. In due course, one hopes, the left will absorb some lessons--but for now, they seem to be suffering a nervous breakdown."
