The One Does What No One Else Could

I don't think it's any surprise to most of us out here in the "Real" US of A, but that liberal bastion, The Washington Post, seems duly impressed that a popular, newly elected Democratic President was able to ram an "emergency" spending (pork) package through a very lopsided Democratic Congress in the midst of a recession which the Democrats (and the liberal press) is portraying (incorrectly) as the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression.  (Wow, that was a long sentence.)


Of course, the Post is correct in saying that "...there is almost nothing in history to rival the economic stimulus legislation that Obama shephereded through congress..."  The Post noted that "Twenty-four days into his presidency, Barack Obama recorded ... a legislative achievement of the sort that few of his predecessors achieved at any point in their tenure." 

The post does not mention that the Big Spending Package was actually written by Pelosi and Reid, and that it is essentially a Democratic "Christmas Catalog" (... er ... secular humanist holiday season catalog) containing everything they've wanted for eight years all at once.

While the MainStream media is all agog over the Big Spending Package, reports out of Washington suggest that the American public is less than enamored with the bill.  Congress has never received as many phone calls as they have in the last week over any issue, and 90% of those calls (according to some) have opposed the package.

If the economy sees a rebound, even if the Big Spending Package does nothing to help it, no doubt Obama will continue to be the Messiah he has been proclaimed thus far.  

On the other hand, if the economy continues to worsen for years to come, as some fear, the MainStream Media may still give Obama a pass, and continue to blame Bush for the next four (or eight) years. 

.... at least that's what I expect.

I think the thing that is scary is that now they have done all they have wanted to do for the last 8 years, what's next? Obama has 4 years left.
