President: “Republicans On Board” GOP: “Not So Fast”

The President met with House and Senate Republicans today and the way he figures it … they will be a part of the final “Democrats Only $825 Billion – $1.3 Trillion” stimulus plan … here he is right after the meeting with House Republicans.

But wait just a dog gone minute. Congressman Mike Pence … a key contributor to that meeting, told Neil Cavuto there is not way they will lend their support to a plan where they have had no input, been shut out by Democrats, on a package that is full of pork. He pegs the plan at not $825 Billion BUT $1.3 Trillion (compounding, don’t ya know)

If President Obama wants Republicans to put their names on this so they can share the blame if it doesn’t work (his political insurance policy) he better get his (Democratic) House in order too.

    This is the same kind of "stimulus" you would get from a call girl: big expensive bill,  a brief feel good moment, then the long term remorse to follow.

    Democrats call girls.  Seems apropos.  I guess they want to upgrade from political whores.

    The so called "stimulus" plan is an "omnibus plunge" for the country (look up "bus plunge" if it isn't obvious).

    Why does the bill call for "$400 million for global-warming research" when the consensus is that AGW is real?  (I am trying not to snicker)

    Bottom line from todays WSJ:  "This is supposed to be a new era of bipartisanship, but this bill was written based on the wish list of every living — or dead — Democratic interest group. As Speaker Nancy Pelosi put it, "We won the election. We wrote the bill." So they did. Republicans should let them take all of the credit."
