Great Job by President Obama in pushing this through. It wasn't easy but it will be part of his lasting legacy.
He did do a great job. But the nature of the vote kind of gives the lie to the 'we the people' thing.
One thing that seems to not get mentioned in all of this is how it took him to rescue this bill from the abyss. It shouldn't have been necessary, but I guess it was.
Ever since his State of the Union address, where he basically said to his fellow Dems in Congress, "Hey, fuck Scott Brown! You gonna let these assholes do a victory dance just because they won a couple of elections recently? They're still the minority and they ain't shit".
He then demonstrated that two days later.
So here's to you, Mr. President...
"they ain't shit" that's real presidential.. ain't it? but I believe he said it.
Actually it was Pelosi who twisted arms and gave bribes.
But facts and reasoning were never your strong points.
Its the first time Obama has gotten his hands dirty and shown some effective leadership in getting something done.
And it was President Obama who made the phone calls to get the bill passed.
It is a major accomplishment for Pelosi though. One of the best performances by a Speaker in 20 years
