Monday, November 2


My buddy JP and I had a convo yesterday @ my local watering hole. (JP, God love 'em voted for Obama.)

JP: "Obama hasn't really done anything."
Me: "He's done plenty of under-the-radar stuff. Things that go largely unreported."

From today's WSJ:
"While President Barack Obama still faces stiff headwinds on a range of major legislation on his agenda, he has been signing into law a slew of smaller initiatives that had gathered dust on the Democratic wish list for years."
For example, the White House slipped a big federal hate crimes law into a defense policy bill. Other measures make it easier for women to sue if they are denied equal pay, prevent development of Western lands, expanded government regulation of tobacco and children's health insurance.
"Rep. Tom Price (R., Ga.), a conservative leader in the House, concedes that, in some cases, Republicans are being outflanked. "The administration is pushing so many things so rapidly it's difficult to concentrate on all of them," he said.
One wishes that President Bush had enacted a larger number of Conservative wish list items in his early years in office with big GOP Congressional Majorities, yes?
