Overwhelming Rejection of Obama Budget a Gimmick, White House Says By Fred Lucas May 16, 2012
(CNSNews.com) As President Barack Obamas budget was poised to fail overwhelmingly in the Senate for the second year, the White House dismissed the vote entirely as a gimmick.
Already, Obamas $3.6 trillion tax and spending plan for fiscal year 2013 was defeated in the House by a vote of 414-0 on March 28. Last year, the Senate defeated Obamas fiscal year 2012 plan by a vote of 97-0.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) has refused to allow a budget vote in the Senate, while the House approved a GOP budget, spearheaded by Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) that passed the House mostly along party lines.
White House Press Secretary Jay Carney seemed prepared for another bipartisan vote against the presidents vote, even as he repeatedly praised Obamas plan as a balanced approach.
We would prefer that the Senate and Congress overall function efficiently, Carney said. As you know, the vote that you referred to was yet another gimmick, and thats why the tally will come out the way it does.
It represents a decision by Republicans to instead of acknowledging that the only solution here is a bipartisan solution, you know, just sort of waste time with gimmicks, Carney continued. There is an avenue here as Ive been discussing, and Ill stop waxing on about it, but the approach we need to take is clear to everyone except apparently for a significant portion of Republican members of Congress.
Senate Republicans are bringing four budget proposals to the floor for a vote that includes Obamas budget plan.

Does it seem to anybody else as if his party is planning to throw him under the bus?
Every time they have a setback of any kind, it’s always a “distraction” or a “gimmick”...ect....ect.
A gimick that his own party is in on? Some joke.
Hey, who needs Congress. Obama will rule by fiat.
“Bipartisan” means giving Democrats what they want
“Compromise” means giving Democraps what they want
I am starting to sense a pattern here...
Direct White Hut quote: “The Rasis rejection of Obama budget a gimmick! President Obama plans to announce his response after the game of his favorite basketball team-The Washington Generals!”
I can't believe they are still determined to give him the DNC nomination.
97-0 is not a gimmick no matter how fast you get it spinning.
All the leadership of a caboose.
Out of 511 total votes cast, President Stoner received exactly Zero votes of support for his proposition.
In 2016 the newly formed Obama Nations, led by Barack Obama, passed the Universal Love and Tolerance Act, renaming the Sun as the homeworld of Barack Obama, giving him dominion over the Earth and thus avoiding historical conflicts over his actual place of birth. Subsequently, each continent was renamed Obama 1 through 7 and the Oceans deemed the font of his knowledge.
These people need to be removed from office.
I'm sure it has crossed the mind of some dims. A convict got 42% of the vote in the WV dimocrat primary! There is talk Obamacaca might lose the AR primary to a Tennesse lawyer. If ZERO is that unpopular with rank and file dims how can they NOT throw him under the bus?
But if they do that--then they are gonna have a whole mess of pissed off Blacks--and the dims can't even survive as an entity without having 90% of the Black vote in the bag.
Oh, what shall they do?
What they always do, blame the racist bitter clinger. The press will latch onto that like a tick and the sheeple shall believe.
Only when people feel sufficient ‘personal’ pain will they reject him. Most are not yet there. When he effects their ‘house’ then they will be the most rabid antis you ever saw.
But then it will not matter.
Yeah, they’ll blame conservatives and the press will go along and lots of sheeple will as well. But a bunch of Black folks will see through it. It’ll be the Lilly White owners of the dimocrat plantation kicking their hero’s butt out the door right before their eyes.
But before the leadership acts, it would have to go to Obamacaca with some kind of “please withdraw for the good of the party” crap, and he’s sure to tell them to go straight to Hades— that’s why I don’t think it will happen. It would be a bloody mess.
Your own team Punk’d you! LOL
1/2 them votes are votes of no confidence from your side....Frickin Loser....
“Hate speech” = anything a Republican says
The dims have to be thinking about the survival of their party at this point after the disaster they wrought upon us in 2008 and help facilitate the Amateur undertake his policies.
2012 will be a wipeout election never having been previously seen in American politics.
