Demo Reid blocked Obama's jobs bill - Obama then said Republicans did

How can President O look in the mirror? Blaming the Republicans for his new stimulus not being passed.

Tuesday in the Senate Sen. Harry Reid blocked Obama's $47 billion "jobs bill" stimulus from a vote. Republican Leader McConnell had moved that the bill be voted on. National Journal Then Reid blocked the vote. Reid the Democrat killed Obama's jobs bill.

Then President O's campaign manager Jim Messina sent out an email saying that Republicans blocked it.

Weekly Standard

About ten minutes later [after the vote], Jim Messina, Obama’s 2012 campaign manager, emailed this message to supporters:
President Obama is in Dallas today urging Americans who support the American Jobs Act to demand that Congress pass it already. 
Though it's been nearly a month since he laid out this plan, House Republicans haven't acted to pass it. And House Majority Leader Eric Cantor is out there actually bragging that they won't even put the jobs package up for a vote -- ever. 
It's not clear which part of the bill they now object to: building roads, hiring teachers, getting veterans back to work. They're willing to block the American Jobs Act -- and they think you won't do anything about it. 
But here's something you can do: Find Republican members of Congress on Twitter, call them out, and demand they pass this bill.
So will the Obama campaign be asking its supporters to "call out" Harry Reid and "demand" he and Senate Democrats pass the bill?
