Joe Manchin Criticizes Obama For Voting Present On Debt While Himself Voting Present on Debt

It's kabuki theater arranged by the Democrats -- their Senators in purple or red states must be allowed to pose, as they do every six years, as moderates, at least in the year and a half before an election.

Joe Manchin says Obama has failed to lead on the deficit and cost-cutting. That's nice. He will further vote against the Democrats' $10 billion in cuts as unserious.

And you know what else he'll vote against? The Republicans' plan to cut $61 billion. Which he says is "partisan" or something.

So he has a nice platform for the election in 2012 (he will have to stand again then, as he's filling out the end of KKK Kleagle Robert Byrd's term). He is both supposedly against Obama and the Democrats but also against the only plausible alternative to Obama and the Democrats.

Expect this kind of deception from a lot of the supposed "moderates" in the Senate.
