HEY, THERE COULD FINALLY BE AN OBAMA BILL FOR HIM TO RUN ON:

GOP amendment aimed at mocking Obama (Martin Kady II , 3/13/08, Politico)

While senators gravely speak about the nation's fiscal health all day during the Senate budget debate, they're not above making purely political points aimed at embarrassing one another.

To wit: Sen. Wayne Allard, a Republican from Colorado, has crafted a massive budget amendment that claims to fund every policy proposed by Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) on the presidential campaign trail. Allard's amendment _ doomed to fail by a significant margin _ includes $1.4 trillion in spending over five years by proposing Obama's universal health care program ($65 billion a year), expanding the Army ($6.6 billion a year) and eliminating income taxes on lower income seniors ($10 billion a year).


It's even post-partisan.

Yeah, so much for Obama being a uniter. His senate colleagues seem to detest him. Even McCain, who buddies up to the worst the other side of the aisle has to offer.
