Obama. Get some backbone!

leave a comment »

Who exactly is running this show? Because right now the GOP seems to be leading the President by the nose. They complain and Obama seems to take heed. They whine about not paying taxes being terrible when half of their caucus was up to their neck in the Abramoff scandal.

Integrity can be a double-edged sword. If you swear by it too much, it can come back and bite you. Obama seems more concerned about polishing his bipartisan credentials than getting anything serious done. The GOP has decided that he’s a liberal that they have to block while the President has decided he wants ‘cross the aisle’. Those two concepts aren’t compatible. He has to abandon this bipartisan obsession now or see his critical first hundred days go up in smoke.

The GOP must be loving this moment. Far from being hustled into obscurity, they’ve been courted and coddled. First, Obama genuflects to the GOP house caucus and gets nothing, then he nominates Judd Gregg for Commerce, after Richardson, a superb public servant gets dumped. And meanwhile, Mitch McConnell is demanding that the President get the Democratic caucus in order if he wants bipartisanship. The gall of that is stupendous, but does Obama respond with the derision it deserves? No, he jumps to it.

Things are getting out of hand. Obama needs to remember who he is. He’s a Democrat, elected by Democrats to bring real “change” to this country. Or was his election mantra just another clever slogan?
