Are the Republicans driven by putting one man out of work - President Obama?

I’ve been saying for a long time that Republicans have one strategy – to crash the economy so that President Obama loses in 2012. Now – finally – it looks like Democrats have figured that out. In a press conference on Capitol Hill yesterday – top Democrats called out Republicans for stopping anything that will help the economy.

As Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin said, “Our Republican colleagues in the House and Senate are driven by putting one man out of work: President Obama."

Many of the stimulus measures Republicans are voting down – like a payroll tax cut for employers – are the very same things they used to support – which is just more proof they don’t give a damn about the economy – they only care about the 2012 elections.
