If President Obama proposed a resolution declaring water to be wet, the GOP members on the Hill would not pass it. With that in mind, it doesn't matter what the President will propose tonight. I doubt seriously that it will pass. How difficult is it to understand that the GOP has absofuckinglutely no intention of passing anything that will help this country, if there is an ancillary benefit politically to the President.
Oh, and while I am on the subject, check out this bit of commentary from a former GOP Hill staffer, Mike Lofgren. I am sure there will be some conspiracy theories about how Lofgren isn't "really" a Republican (because no Republican can ever actually disagree with Republican policy ideas, and still claim to be a Republican, right?), but I think he establishes his credentials just fine. What Lofgren says fits perfectly with what we are seeing play out in Washington (here's some Matt Taibbi to add further analysis to Lofgren's points).
So, I will watch the speech tonight. I wonder who will scream out at the President this time around. Maybe it will be more than one person, and more money will be raised for them for "standing up to the President," again.
