Obama’s Indonesia/Australia trip delayed Sydney’s overnight talk radio changes: Jim Ball to 2GB and Mike Jeffreys to 2UE

Dear Kevin, insulting people does not make them more likely to support you

March 13th, 2010 at 03:25pm

Kevin Rudd, commenting on the similarities between his problems in making parliament do as he says, and Obama’s predicament in passing his agenda in the US:

“But he has health reform on his agenda on Washington. We have health and hospitals reform on our agenda here in Australia. He has a thing called a troublesome Senate.

“I have a troublesome Senate as well.”

Kevin Rudd was commenting on how he understands the reason for Obama’s delayed visit and how “Australia would fit in with the President’s timetable”. So does Kevin really think that bowing to Obama (that would make a change from Obama’s habit of bowing to everyone…maybe we can have a bow-off) and insulting his own Senate will make the Senate more likely to agree with him, or is his plan to somehow make Obama the new Australian Senate?

    I’m not quite sure how this is an insult towards the senate. Is it not true that the senate has knocked back approx. 3 or 4 times more bills than in the previous 30 or so years?
