Obama’s Legislative Steamroller Losing Steam?

Betsy Newmark details the ways in which conservatives can credit luck as Democrats have blinked in order to make Obama’s legislative hope for change not so hopey and not so changey . . . at least not yet. But, as she says, " They’ll [conservatives] need to marshal their best arguments if they’re going to win these policy arguments. They had no chance when the Democrats, flushed with their exhilaration over their 2008 victory, were poised to cram them through. Now there is a chance that they can modify such proposals for the better. It will be up to them to build on that opportunity, slight though it is." In other words, now is not the time to get side-tracked with intra-mural spit-wad fights.

They need to slow down everything. Look what happens when things are rushed threw. No one gets to read the bill and then there is an uproar. I dont think they can take a change of that again. There is too much trying to get things threw quickly.
