Republicans, Democrats agree: No one cares about Obama’s to-do list

posted at 12:01 pm on May 30, 2012 by Ed Morrissey

Chief executives are never entirely irrelevant, whether they are governors or Presidents.  They have too much significance and can cause too many problems to be altogether meaningless in the political process.  Once they begin to appear irrelevant, though, Presidents and governors almost never recover their political relevancy.  In that sense, today’s Roll Call article on the fate of Barack Obama’s legislative “to-do list” should have the White House very worried, as neither Republicans nor Democrats demonstrate much interest in Obama’s legislative priorities — or even seem to know what they are:

In the meantime, several Senators confessed to Roll Call that they don’t know what is on the to-do list anyway, despite several speeches in which Obama has urged his followers to tweet, call, write and email lawmakers urging them to take it up.

“Didn’t we do some things he wanted us to do?” asked Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-La.). “[Export-Import] Bank, that doesn’t count? That wasn’t on the to-do list?”

No. The president wanted that, too, but it’s not on the list.

“Do you have a copy of the to-do list?” Landrieu asked.

After a reporter told her what was on the list, she quipped, “We’re adding to that list by doing some great things.”

“I don’t have a copy of it; I’m sure my staff does,” said Sen. Bob Casey (D-Pa.), when asked when the Senate might get to it.

“We’ve got June, July. We’ve got some time. What time frame did he put on that to-do list?”

When told the president said the to-do list could be done “now,” Casey joked, “Now is a very expansive term. It’s not even the summer yet.“

“Didn’t we just try to move on student loans. Wasn’t that on his list?” asked Sen. Carl Levin (D-Mich.).

No, that’s a separate priority.

“You’d have to ask Harry Reid” why the list hasn’t moved, Levin said.

All three of these examples, it should be noted, are members of Obama’s own political party.  They control the Senate, which means that the President’s legislative agenda should have no problem getting to the floor, unless it’s so out of step with reality that no one wants to move it.  In this case, it appears at least so far out of step with his own Democratic allies that they haven’t bothered to learn it.  Not only that, but clearly Obama’s stump-speech exhortations to support his agenda are failing miserably at getting a response.

Obama has no one but himself to blame for this irrelevancy.  He set the stage himself with two successive budgets that were so ridiculously burdened with debt that neither got a single vote in three separate attempts — not even from anyone in his own party.  In a parliamentary system, that would have forced a resignation from the head of government.  In our system, it sends a pretty clear signal that the White House has no real clue about the political temperature in either party, and as such have made themselves largely irrelevant in the budgeting process. Budget agreements now get made between John Boehner and Harry Reid thanks to Obama’s ridiculous offerings on spending, and Obama would have to sign whatever comes out of those negotiations or take the blame on himself for a shutdown.

We saw this happen at the state level in Minnesota a decade ago.  Jesse Ventura became so detached from the governance of the state that Republicans and Democrats united to pass veto-proof budgets, effectively cutting the governor out of the loop and making him a figurehead.  That won’t happen in Congress, especially not in an election year, but the lack of interest in Obama’s priorities among Democrats and Republicans alike show that the level of Obama’s irrelevance to governance is increasing, not decreasing.

I wouldn’t be surprised if the Regmie failed to distribute copies of the list to Democrat legislators. I mean, c’mon, everyone knew it was just some bullcrap distraction for the news people last week, right?

This list though, it is different from his “enemies list” and his “to be whacked by targeted drone strike, but not waterboarded” list?

This guy sure has alot of lists.

..yeah, but Jesse didn’t have time to bleed, did he? Who knows? Maybe Chris Kyle will coldcock The POTUS as well.

The War Planner on May 30, 2012 at 12:13 PM

Ultimately, though, I [Barack Obama] believe any attempt by Democrats to pursue a more sharply partisan and ideological strategy misapprehends the moment we’re in. I am convinced that whenever we exaggerate or demonize, oversimplify or overstate our case, we lose. Whenever we dumb down the political debate, we lose. For it’s precisely the pursuit of ideological purity, the rigid orthodoxy and the sheer predictability of our current political debate, that keeps us from finding new ways to meet the challenges we face as a country.

J_Crater on May 30, 2012 at 12:13 PM

The nation needs its chief executive to lead; he calls the dance.

This POTUS has been unserious since the 2010 midterms; he could have had a grand bargain with Boehner last summer but refused to risk any political capital. If he had, the economy would already be stronger and his re-election prospects brighter.

That he finds himself in political peril is no one’s fault but his own.

Obama is petulant, juvenile, and incapable of leadership.

rockmom on May 30, 2012 at 12:14 PM

lil’ choomie needs to go back and read the constitution, apparently he was stoned the first time-

the executive branch has no power to command the legislative branch to address laws and/or initiatives that the executive branch deems important. McDowngrade’s “to do list” was laughably absurd even when he was reading aloud from his ‘prompters about it.

Earflaps appears to misunderstand that we are not living under the Venezuelan constitution- yet.

What a foppish, ineffectual dunce we have as “president”.

I have been waiting for this for a long time. Obama goes around the country giving the same speech how the GOP won’t pass his job bills. Except there are no jobs bills submitted by the WH. There are a few by the GOP Senators, and quite a few by the House, some bi-partisan. All tabled by Reid. Meanwhile, the EPA, The DOI, The DOH and the Justice Dept. are killing jobs everywhere with regulations and impositions.
When will a reporter finally ask Obama what bills are pending that he submitted and what is there relevancy to jobs? And please share the economic analysis showing the job creation projection.

I am not joking, dead serious.

Seek medical attention NOW

Symptoms:

Delusional – you continue to believe The Won is something other than a Chicago Machine empty suit.

Paranoia – you are seeing the disdain people have for The Won as hate.

Superiority syndrome – you believe everyone who disagrees with you is beneath you.

The good news is your doctor (who is going to TELL you he/she agrees with you) is seeing a fair amount of these symptoms and will want to get you started on medication before Obamacare deems it unnecessary.

Why is it that “progressives” resort to the HATE thing when describing criticisn of our incompetent President?

Is it hateful for people to recognize the failure of the President to not know the difference between “Polish death camps,” which he read off his teleprompter, and the real thing, Nazi death camps? That’s more than sloppy by him and his staff! Reminds one of the Navy Corpse man,(corpsman).

All the HATE I have been seeing is coming from liberals.
As to how we function in life …

It’s called The Lord’s Prayer – excerpt:

” … as we forgive those who trespass against us.”

Ever heard of it?

Dear Leader is not really running as a Democrat and vulnerable Democrats know it. He can’t help them, and he’s not trying to.

The Democrats’ election war cry this time around is basically “Every Democrat for himself — or herself.

Manchin started this trend in WV last election and the strategy is catching on in Democratic circles.

Further evidence the part-time community organizer and state senator turned Dear Leader is not much of a leader at all. He is as incompetent at leading as he is at economics. His only skills are giving canned campaign speeches to adoring crowds and raising money from far left liberal big money donors and useful idiots.

It is not hate. It is the truth; and the truth, my friend, as we all know, hurts.

Obama has a BIG hurt going on now, hasn’t he?

Hey honey, deep breaths, you’ll need the practice come November 6th when your Boy King starts packin’ his golf bags for Chicago.

You mean haters like these..

If hate were fatal.. there wouldn’t be enough democrats left to fill a single small state.

Uppereastside on May 30, 2012 at 12:31 PM

You sure?

You sound angry. And we care about you and stuff.

bigmacdaddy on May 30, 2012 at 12:35 PM

Me??? I am not the one moaning and bit$8ing all day about how Obama did XYZ. Then again, most of you are probably losers looking to blame everyone else for your fu$k ups.

Medical attention was an honest suggwestion.

LOL….having a strong Libertarian streak, I’m generally agianst the banning of moronic, agenda-driven trolls, But I’ve gotta say…..you contribute absolutely nothing to the discussion.

Yet you feel the need to comment on every thread.

You’re fairly stupid, you repeat the same two or three lib-tardian talking points over and over, and you’re a hateful, vile little person.

You bore me.

Gotta tell ya…to me, “boring” + “stupid” = an offense worthy of banishment.

Why don’t you go play at moveon…or comedy central?
