What was it I said yesterday about the solution to partisan politics being united against Obama's nonsense? Seems like the theory works.
The Senate, which has, admittedly, been loathe to pass a budget even when they agree on stuff, joined hands in a bipartisan bear hug yesterday to vote down the model budget that the Obama White House presented to them just a few short weeks ago. And while they have yet to come up with a solid idea of their own, they know, at least, that there's no way in hell that Barack Obama is getting everything - or anything - he wants.
Senators on Tuesday opposed an amendment that would have swapped out the Republican budget with the one rolled out by President Obama earlier this year.
The amendment failed by a 1-98 vote, with Sen. Tom Carper (D-Del.) voting for the amendment.
