Yesterday, the Dems voted 148-102 to support Pres BO's Afghan war effort. It passed because Republicans voted 160-32!
Yes, it passed but this is a sign of things to come.
It won't be fun for Pres BO, specially when he has to tell the base that the July 2011 deadline was just words, or telling them what they wanted to hear!
What a difference a couple of years makes. Two years ago, "hope and change" had a speech and a solution for everything.
And he had lots of "screamers" digesting every "yes we can" nonsense coming from the candidate's teleprompter.
Today, he is reversing one promise after another, from GITMO to immigration reform.
And he will soon have to break another one, i.e. the Bush tax cuts on dividends and capital gains that expire on January 1st!
Speaking of Pres BO, we see this from Simon Heffer in the UK:
"The shock about coming to America after an absence of four months is how, in that time, respect for and confidence in President Obama has slumped.
It is not clear what Mr Obama actually does.
He isn't engaged with the economy; he certainly isn't engaged with foreign policy; he has abandoned hope of a climate change bill this year (and probably for ever); he has seen his health care bill into law, but America awaits news of how it will be implemented; he is under attack for a casual approach to illegal immigration, notably from the Mexican narco-state."
Do you get the feeling that BO wishes that he was back in Chicago?
Giving speeches about the rising oceans?
Telling immature "screamers" what they wanted to hear?
Promoting another book about himself?
I'd bet he does!
This is one fairy tale that has gone off script!
