Joe Biden: Oh, How I Wish Opponents Of Obama's More-Money-For-Teachers-and-Other-Liberal-Constituencies Bill Knew The Experience of a 200 Pound Man Telling Them To Submit

Has Joe Biden ever known this experience?

Would he recommend it to a friend?

President Obama’s $447 billion jobs bill would provide roughly $30 billion in aid to state and local governments to help retain about 400,000 teachers at risk of being fired because of budget cuts, and an additional $5 billion to help local governments keep about 18,000 police officers and 7,000 firefighters on the job.

So, first off the bat, we're talking about 6:1 teachers:cops & firefighters.

And yet he mostly talks about the latter.

What if we agreed to the $5 billion for cops, but rejected the $30 billion for teachers?

Of course they wouldn't agree; the teachers unions are the liberal coalitions' most important clients.

...

In Philadelphia on Tuesday, standing with Philadelphia Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey and other officers at Houston Hall at the University of Pennsylvania, the vice president said that one argument he’s “heard from my friends who oppose” the jobs bill is that “this is just temporary.”

“Well let me tell you, it’s not temporary when that 911 call comes in and a woman’s being raped if a cop shows up in time to prevent the rape,” he continued. “It’s not temporary to that woman.

“It’s not temporary to the guy whose store is being held up and a gun is being pointed to his head,” he continued, “if a cop shows up and he’s not killed, that’s not temporary to that store owner.

“Give me a break, ‘temporary’!” the Veep said. “I wish these guys that thought it’s temporary, I wish they had some notion what it’s like to be on the other side of a gun. Or a 200 pound man standing over you telling you to submit. Folks, it matters. It matters!”

And yet, Joe Biden's wish that we all be raped by 200 pound submission fetishists aside, the funding would, in fact, still be temporary.

Oh, and meantime, the liberal media continues to worry that the Obama Administration is too coolly rational for its own good, and not filled with enough demagogic populism.

Not a Hit With Democratic Moderates, Either: Via the sidebar, "Stimulus fatigue."

Several moderate Democrats and Republicans appear to be struggling to overcome “stimulus fatigue” setting in among voters back home and are withholding support for now — meaning the latest proposal is at risk of winning even less backing than the president’s signature economic bill, which fell nine votes shy of breaking a GOP-led filibuster last week.

“At some point — and my opinion is now — we’ve got to stop spending money we don’t have,” said Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.), who caucuses with Democrats. He told POLITICO he probably would vote to block the latest proposal from even moving forward for debate.
