Poor, Poor, Pitiful Obama
Yes, President Obama inherited a tough situation and, no, the Republicans didn't help him out very much (some of them in the media and on the Hill were downright nasty to him) but aren't we eventually going to reach a statute of limitations on feeling sorry for him? I mean, my God, a) him and his side are slinging it pretty good themselves of late (that ad about the poor bastard's wife dying of cancer and Stephanie Cutter downplaying the death of those four brave Americans, two recent examples) and b) you really gotta show some leadership, for Christ. Reagan didn't have anywhere a bullet-proof majority when he took office and he was able to take his case to the American people and basically shamed the Democrats to act. President Obama? The only thing that he really did, in my opinion, was carry damned Pelosi's water and pencil.
