This is Obama’s Katrina.  For those of you who aren’t aware, Obama caved BIG-TIME yesterday… or something. See, he wanted to address Congress about his jobs plan on September 7, which is Congress’s first day back from summer recess. (You remember jobs, right?  Most of you probably don’t have one because Congress refuses to do its job and come up with a plan to put Americans back to work.) John Boehner, in an unprecedented yet unsurprising move, sent a letter to Administration saying, “No” — after initially offering no objection …

The lovely harlana notes that: Ordinary people have sacrificed enough already. Come on! I saw 2 people on the blog last nite who have recently lost their jobs.
