Doing the election-year procrastinating no other Americans would do:

Senate Budget Committee Chairman Kent Conrad (D-N.D.) bowed to pressure from fellow Democrats on Tuesday and postponed a committee vote on a 2013 budget resolution, most likely until after the November elections.

Conrad on Wednesday will begin a committee markup of a resolution based on the Bowles-Simpson deficit recommendations, but told reporters there is no date scheduled on which the markup vote would occur.

“This is the wrong time to vote in committee; this is the wrong time to vote on the floor,” he said. “I don’t think we will be prepared to vote before the election.”

It’s been the “wrong time” to do the basic business of passing budgets for more than 1,000 days.

Where’s President Obama to lambaste the do-nothings for obstructionism now? Guess he’s content to let sleeping dogs lie.
