Reid Scraps Much-Vaunted "Bipartisan Jobs Bill," For Being... Bipartisan

Baucus, the Democrats' negotiator, had been too bipartisan, you see.

Reid killed the bill after hearing complaints from members of his own caucus who argued that Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus (D-Mont.) had gone too far beyond the core goal of job creation in order to win Republican support.

Maybe he's talking about the Patriot Bill extension that was supposed to be tucked into the bill.

The bill, Harry Reid flat-out tells you, isn't about jobs at all.

It's about having a message about jobs.

“The message is so watered down with people wanting other things in this big package that we’re going to have to come back and finish that,” he said.

...

“And then when we finish that, we’ll move on to the tax extenders and all the other stuff,” Reid told reporters after the weekly Democratic Senate lunch. “But we feel the American people need a message. The message that they need is that we’re doing something about jobs. We don’t have a jobs bill. We have a jobs agenda.”

This guy isn't even pretending to talk about jobs -- he's just telling the press flat-out the political message he wants to get out by spending a $100 billion. And they don't even seem to notice.

George Bush (the Elder) famously read his stage-directions one time: Message: I care. He wasn't supposed to say that. That was supposed to guide him in how to present himself, to subliminally convey that. But he accidentally read it aloud.

And caught hell for it -- what a dummy. What a phony.

Here's Reid going on and on not about jobs but about crafting a political message to save his 2010 campaign and no one in our press corps bats an eye.

Hey Harry? If you want to send a message, you don't need $100 billion.

Start a blog, you useless retard.
