NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Lately I've been wondering who has more reason to be annoyed with President Obama -- Republicans and conservatives, or the Democrats and progressives who are, supposedly, his "base" (in the sense that they, uh, got him elected in the first place). It seems to me that if you more or less fall into the latter category, you've got a lot more reason to be annoyed with the president than if you belong to the former category.What has gotten my mind twirling in this direction is a simply atrocious piece of legislation that is grinding its way to passage on Capitol Hill. It's called the Jump-Start Our Business Start-Ups Act, which the president has endorsed.
