RALEIGH President Obama turned up the rhetorical heat in his push for his jobs bill on Wednesday, declaring that the country is facing a national emergency that demands Congressional action on his $447 billion economic package.
Plunging into his third battleground state in five days, Mr. Obama told highly charged students in a packed basketball arena at North Carolina State University that he was sick of the partisanship that has engulfed Washington during the last three years. He accused lawmakers of deliberately dragging their feet on his economic plan, not because they dont think it will help, but because they do not want to give him a political win.
Give me a win? Mr. Obama said, his voice rising as the crowd started cheering. Give me a break. Thats exactly why folks are fed up with Washington.
Even as initial polls suggest that only half of Americans support his jobs proposal, Mr. Obama appears convinced of his ability to sell it to the public, and he urged his audience to sell it in turn to their Congressional representatives.

It sure is. I’m surprised it is not getting more play. When not a single House rat from a safe district is willing to give his opponent next year a club with which to beat him, Hussein is in real trouble.
No it doesn’t. That’s plain to see. It says he was responsible for the budgets from 2001 to 2008.
Maybe you are drunk
Let's count shall we? You won't even have to take of your shoes for this one:
What'd you get? I got eight.
Who signed the 2001 budget into law, Clinton or Bush?
How come Bush served for eight years but is only responsible for seven budget years?
Regardless of whether the correct years are labeled, there are eight years labeled.
Yeah, I know. I needed you to admit that you were counting 2001 as a Bush year and were not counting 2009.
So who signed the budget for 2001, Bush or Clinton?
Who caused the $650B revenue loss in 2009, Bush or Obama?
Who asked for TARP and signed it into law in 2008, Bush or Obama?
Who signed a continuing resolution (with discretionary spending increases) for the first five months of 2009, Bush or Obama?
So what were these references you were talking about? I gave mine. Fair is fair so you should give yours, right?
I simply jumped in to point out that you were counting wrong.
Foiled by my own inattentiveness!
Even Reid didn't personally "sponsor" it. He's named as the sponsor, followed by the notation "(by request)". There are no co-sponsors.
