    this process involves lots of time and effort. It's not something that was likely to give him a bump right away, if only because most people aren't paying attention to stuff like we are doing. He's not at the point yet where everyone and their mother knows that he wants to pass the American Jobs Act, but in a few months, he should be.

      And...crickets. Why didn't Harry Reid open debate the day after? No wonder people disapprove of the clowns on Capitol Hill.

          No floor debate. Nothing even scheduled as yet. I thought it was an imperative? Inaction makes the president's speech look purely political. As I said, Harry Reid should have made it the top priority right away. Seriously, if Obama loses then Congressional Democrats of whatever stripe are as much to blame as their Republican colleagues.

        ...just as the messaging strategy on this.

        You hold the vote and it goes down, you''re already down to Plan B.  You didn't even get the benefit of the national TV ad campaign the DNC is running before it's moot.

        Reid is playing this right, I can't imagine the Administration has a problem with what he's doing.
