Why didn't you post what the dems think about Obama's latest budget proposal? Just like his first budget proposal...the democrats also trashed this one. I don't know why anyone is surprised about this situation. Obama is not a leader. He is an organizer and a speaker...that is as long as somebody else writes what he should say.<quoted text>
Congressional Republicans effectively declared Barack Obama's budget to be dead in the water on Friday – in spite of concessions that would see cuts to welfare benefits.
The budget, which would kick in on October 1, is not due to be published until Wednesday, but the main elements were reported on Friday by the New York Times and Reuters, and confirmed off the record by the White House. As well as benefit cuts, the budget proposes tax rises.
The Republican House speaker, John Boehner, dismissed the proposed benefit cuts as "modest".
Obama made a rare visit to Congress last month to address House Republicans, who have proved to be his staunchest opponents, in an attempt to gather support for his budget.
He doesn't have a clue. He is 1% Hollywood Mayor material at best.
