During the campaign, I posted concerns about Obama's toughness.
Can this guy stand up to anybody? Has this guy ever told any liberal Dems what they didn't want to hear?
He didn't stand up to Rev. Wright!
Let's face it.
How do you explain that? He is either deaf or he is weak!
He didn't stand up to the left wing clique in Chicago!
He didn't challenge a single liberal interest group, such as the teachers' unions.
Last week, the House Dems made Pres BO's "post partisan" appeal look silly.
In the next few days, Obama must answer a big question:
Is he tough enough to stand up to Pelosi's liberal Dems?
Or will bend over and get pushed around by Pelosi's Dems?
Why does it matter? Because first impressions define a presidency.
The Washington Post has a great editorial:
"MOUNTING THE bully pulpit last week, President Obama gave Wall Street a lecture about the $18.4 billion in bonuses that the securities industry awarded itself in 2008.
This was "outrageous," Mr. Obama said.
In these tough times, he declared, financiers must "show some restraint and show some discipline and show some sense of responsibility."
Now the president should make the same demand on those in Congress, including leaders of his own party, who are cluttering his fiscal stimulus plan with extraneous and counterproductive provisions."
We read that ‘Jimmy Carter’ tag has Obama wincing!
Well, stop acting like Pres. Carter and act like a president!
