What is the president’s strategy here?

He has to know that its going nowhere fast, and probably won’t make it to a vote in House.

Yet, his shrill advocacy of a DOA bill continues as if it the thing could ever possibly pass in this Congress.

The President may truly be a narcissistic psychopath. He may actually believe he is light years more intelligent than anyone else, and therefore able to convince the American people of anything- no matter how ridiculous or outlandish.

When the economy doesn’t improve in the next year (and it won’t), he’ll try to blame Republicans for not passing his bill. It won’t work.

Why does he even bother with asking for passage. Just issue an executive order and it would be law lickity split.

Bo and his wife are becoming a laughingstock in the USA. I think even the left are beginning to laugh at him.

If the economy continues to implode, the pResident can cauterwahl at the top of his lungs, during the 2012 campaign, that he did all that was humanly possible to right the ship. It was the evil republicans fault. If the economy recovers, as businesses get hopeful that this Marxist interloper of dubious origin is going to get kicked out of office, he'll try to take credit for that (ignoring the fact that his 'jobs for government' bill did not pass). It's strictly politics. This fellow does not know how to govern or lead. He's just skilled in the fine art of demogaguery (and reading teleprompters).

He thinks both possibilities work for him.

If the Congress passes it and the economy continues to be crappy, then the MSM pushes the meme of Republicans sharing the blame. But it won't pass.

If it doesn't pass, then Zero moves to class warfare and race-baiting. Democrats on the debt supercommittee will demand raising taxes, which Republicans will not agree to, and Zero will campaign against the Rethuglican plutocrats protecting the fat cat rich. And with black unemployment through the roof, Zero will claim that failure to pass Son of Porkulus proves that the Rethuglicans are racists, motivating his black base to march and riot.

He's desperate because he wants to funnel this money to the unions to help with his re-election campaign.
