If you’re President Barack Obama, things are looking rather good these days. That is, other than the really low approval ratings ( which would have been great media fodder if it were George Bush, wait a minute, it was media fodder), high unemployment numbers, a growing budget deficit, etc.
Your health care bill is now the law of the land. Although I would not express it the way blue-collar Joe said, it is a big f…ing deal in ways that we as yet do not know.You have just negotiated an arms reduction deal with the Russians and you are showing Netanyahu and Israel who’s the boss.
As a result we seem to be seeing the return of Obama the perpetual campaigner. And, the Democrat base has got to loving it. He ‘s in the face of the Republicans verbally and otherwise. Try the recess appointments of 15 individuals featuring Craig Becker as an example. And today, Obama will sign the health care fixes bill. One tiny little jewel in that bill will decimate the private student lending business by in essence, federalizing the student lending program.
Oh and the Democrats, via Henry Waxman, are sending a message to those companies warning of higher health care costs. Hearings begin April 21. The elections, in case you have forgotten, are in November.
