Sen. Evan Bayh (D-IN).
Wonder what you would find if you frisked CBS News’ interview with U.S. Senator Evan Bayh (D-IN) this morning?
Answer: Apparently, Sen. Bayh doesn’t believe the Democrat’s stimulus package has created a single private-sector job.
OUCH! Talk about going out with a bang! Haha. If you watch the video clip I posted above, you will hear Sen. Bayh say:
If I could create one job in the private sector by helping to grow a business, that would be one more than Congress has created in the last six months.
Even if Sen. Bayh is trying to be tricky with his wording by using the phrase “the last six months,” it still seems pretty clear that he has jumped on the bandwagon that 94% of American voters are on:
Poor President Obama… Americans are not buying his “saved or created” 2 million jobs that he just announced last month.

Wonder what you would find if you frisked the United States Senate today?
Answer: Evan Bayh (D-IN) officially announced that he is retiring.
The New York Times reports:
Senator Evan Bayh, the Indiana Democrat, said on Monday that he will not seek a third term in Congress, a move that gives Republicans yet another opportunity to pick up a Senate seat and gives Democrats some fresh anxiety about whether they are losing the party’s center.
The decision, which he announced at an afternoon press conference, came as a surprise to Democrats in his state who had already started working on his campaign.
Mr. Bayh, 54, made his decision even after entreaties by President Obama and White House aides, including the chief of staff, Rahm Emanuel, who urged him to run.
In his remarks, Mr. Bayh expressed frustration at what he described as an increasingly polarized atmosphere in Washington that made it impossible to get anything done.
“For some time, I have had a growing conviction that Congress is not operating as it should,” he said. “There is much too much partisanship and not enough progress. Too much narrow ideology and not enough practical problem solving.”
And while he complimented his colleagues in the Senate, he said that “the institution is in need of significant reform.”
Another Democrat down for the count folks! Former Senator Dan Coats (R-IN) announced last week that he would challenge Bayh. Hmm… What’s that smell? I think it might be Conservative victory 2010!
