Obama Causing a Liberal Freakout

Well it seems that Obama is getting more and more like Bush everyday. The Clintons are probably real pissed as he is stealing their playbook.

Most of what I've seen so far makes me think he could be a really good POTUS. That is, of course, until the democRAT Congress gets involved. That is where the rubber meets the road, and I fear he is in for a sever reality-check.

Wo, Jayhawk, in the other thread you said the POTUS just stands on the sidelines. Make up your fucking mind for christ sakes.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address

Funny, the only place I read about "liberal freakout" is from conservative writers. Folks on the left don't have a problem with a bipartisan effort to start cleaning up this mess that we are in. It is going to take EVERYONE. Only the obstructionists are going to be left on the sidelines and from what I can estimate there are somewhat under 28% left.

Jay is correct, it is going to be the machinations of Congress, from the power struggle of Congress to try and re-balance itself from eight years of an Administration that tried to tilt the balance toward Executive to a Minority that wants to put its power in front of what is good for the country to a group of Dems who are not sure where they fit in this new system that define what happens.

If we as a country are lucky, it will balance quickly. I find it fun to watch that many of the conservative talking heads are already trying to "grade" the new administration and their policies before they even get into office.

A "sever reality check?" (Or did you mean "severe reality check"?)

Bush has been "severing" reality for quite some time and creating his own instead.

Hey, if you haven't yet, read Bushworld by Maureen Dowd.

She fairly describes the phenomenon of always being right at any cost that defines the Bush doctrine.
