Another Obama Victory! His Budget Goes Down to Defeat by 414-0 Vote

Clearly, this is racist.

President Obama’s budget was defeated 414-0 in the House late Wednesday, in a vote Republicans arranged to try to embarrass him and shelve his plan for the rest of the year.

He gets zero votes from his own party, but it’s those mean Republicans trying to embarrass the poor thing.


The vote came as the House worked its way through its own fiscal year 2013 budget proposal, written by Budget Committee Chairman Paul D. Ryan. Republicans wrote an amendment that contained Mr. Obama’s budget and offered it on the floor, daring Democrats to back the plan, which calls for major tax increases and yet still adds trillions of dollars to the deficit over the next decade.

“It’s not a charade. It’s not a gimmick — unless what the president sent us is the same,” said Rep. Mick Mulvaney, a freshman Republican from South Carolina who sponsored Mr. Obama’s proposal for purposes of the debate. “I would encourage the Democrats to embrace this landmark Democrat document and support it. Personally, I will be voting against it.”

But no Democrats accepted the challenge.

Cowards, obviously. It seems clear Democrats will be steering clear of this guy come election time. Seriously, who wants to associates themselves with such a miserable failure?

Update: Via Val Prieto, check out this headline from the AP:

GOP-run House easily rejects bipartisan budget

Obama’s economy-killing budget is bipartisan? Really?

    Dude- this is all part of the brilliant plan, it is actually a stunning victory, just like the supreme court overturning Obamacare is a great victory, like a broken leg is a victory,
    if you are messiah everything is a victory….
    But I can’t wait to hear the spin, cause they will really have to reach.

    Apparently some adults are creeping back into the room. Even democratic adults can now call B.S. when they see it. Thank God.
