"It is not that the nay-saying Republicans have a plan of their own; they agree on nothing except cutting taxes. Their leader, Rush Limbaugh, the entertainer, has told them that their job is to make sure that Obama fails.

In an American context, Republicans have been called America's stupid party for much of their history, but that title clearly passed to the Democrats in the 1970s and 1980s, and perhaps for most of '90s and on into the 21st century. Now, led by wacko pundits like Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Ann Coulter and a bunch of less-prosperous firebugs, the Republicans have lost all sense of what is happening in the country."

I listened to Rush's show right after the inauguration and he openly admitted that he was now basically all that was left of the conservative movement. An entertainer for heaven's sake. All that is left of a con movement is a bunch of lunatic fringe that somehow had a day in the sun during a time of national anger and vulnerability (9/11) . I think it truly is a time for a new new deal. The ultimate success for Obama would be to navigate through the financial crisis and end up with a universal healthcare system.

Unfortunately, Obama can't control the Democrats in the House and Senate. I have ZERO sympathy for the Republicons, but it's definitely time for Emanuel to start putting the Democrats on choke collars - as far as possible.

And did you notice the SPAM links below the comments? It's easy to weed them out at WordPress. I'm gonna' see what I can do here at *this* site. These guys are amazingly clever.
