If Obama was a "socialist radical" as the RWNJs have claimed, he would have jumped at all the chances to nationalize banks, insurance and car companies that have fallen in his lap. Instead, he's just a typical Democrat. What the GOP is eating right now is years of failure to deliver. Obama knows that a majority of Americans want certain things, and instead of blocking those things in the interest of the business lobby, Obama is going to deliver them.
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
