As Allah wrote of last night’s Senate vote to block the president’s jobs bill, the outcome was just about as perfect as it could have been for the president, whose jobs package — loaded as it was with tax hikes Republicans were bound to reject out of hand — wasn’t designed to pass in the first place. The vote last night provides the basis for Democrats to blame Republican obstructionism for the next 13 months of a slow-to-no recovery — and blame ‘em they will. But they won’t just blame “Generic Republicans.” As the Senate now lays its plans to vote piece by piece on the American Jobs Act, Democrats are tightening their message against the Tea Party.

AP2011 – President Obama wipes his brow as he speaks during a town hall meeting at Lower Hannah’s Bend Park in Cannon Falls, Minn., Monday, Aug. 15, 2011.
The Obama administration now faces a key legal and political dilemma — what to do about the recent decision from a federal appeals court that said the new law’s mandate that every uninsured American must buy health insurance is unconstitutional.
“They definitely don’t want to see it go to the Supreme Court until after the elections,” said Kirsten Powers, a former Democratic operative and a Fox News analyst. “So my expectation is they would do whatever they can to slow walk this so that this does not get to the Supreme Court where possibly the individual mandate could be struck down which would be very damaging for the administration.”
