The Pussilanimous GOP
Here is Ken Thomas'
take on Obama's meeting with the GOP a few days ago. He thinks Obama came out on top; the Republican Congressmen gave him legitimacy. I like this paragraph: "The Republicans don't seem to realize that Obama's fall was the exposure of a
student body president as a schoolyard bully. Republican deference to him
enables him to play his former stellar role (albeit minus the Greek columns).
This is seen most clearly in the whining of two members that the Democrats don't
take their ideas seriously and that they are dissed as the party of No. Why
treat Obama as though he has moral authority to grant legitimacy? Is he going to
denounce Gramma Pelosi in front of them? (He didn't.)
