Obama Budget Plan Fails in Senate 0-97 After Zero Dems Vote For it…

More Progressive Democrat Hypocrisy. –  I know, I know, “Democrat-Hypocrisy it’s an oxymoron, but still…. sheeesh.….

(Washington Examiner) – Zero Senate Democrats voted to move forward on President Obama’s 2012 budget proposal, and the motion to proceed on it failed by a unanimous 0-97 vote.  What this means is that thus far, no Senate Democrat has voted in favor of any budget plan.

As Guy Benson notes, this was the same Obama budget that Democrats effusively praised when it was released in February:

SEN. HARRY REID (D-NV): “President Obama’s budget is a serious attempt…” (Sen. Reid, Press Release, 2/14/11)

SEN. CHUCK SCHUMER (D-NY): “This is a responsible proposal… I believe this approach should have bipartisan support.” (Sen. Schumer Press Release, 2/15/11)

SEN. CHRIS COONS (D-DE): “I am encouraged … I applaud the President for remaining committed to innovation…” (Sen. Coons, Press Release, 2/14/11)

SEN. JEANNE SHAHEEN (D-NH): “…a responsible framework…”(Sen. Shaheen, Press Release, 2/14/11)

SEN. BILL NELSON (D-FL): “I personally think that the President’s budget is a step in the right direction.”(U.S. Senate, Finance Committee, Hearing, 2/16/11)

SEN. KENT CONRAD (D-ND): “The President’s budget gets it about right in the first year.”(Sen. Conrad, Press Release, 2/14/11)

SEN. BEN CARDIN (D-MD): “President Obama has given us a credible blueprint…” (Sen. Cardin, Press Release, 2/14/11)

SEN. KAY HAGAN (D-NC): “…a good start.” (Sen. Hagan, Press Release, 2/14/11)

    (Hey, anyone remember a Seattle?-based sketch comedy show called “Almost Live”? They had this recurring bit called “The Lame List” . . . This would totally be on that. . .)

    I am surprised that no one voted for it. I would almost say that it was a vote against Obama. I am wondering if this is there way to send a message to Obama that actually is connected to what he said last week in regards to Israel. Or that when he turned his back on Israel, he lost the democrats in Congress and this is there way to show that they no longer will support him. I am sure this will be a one time vote, but I think there is a big message in this vote.
