    It's only been 2 weeks. There is a LOT more to come. And, once Franken is seated that's one less 'centrist' Republican that the Senate hast to pick up to avoid a filibuster.

    I have a feeling you won't be welcoming a lot of the 'change' that is coming.
    I'm confused. You tout the fact that he "actually consulted with the other party" as if that's admirable. But in the next paragraph you're downright giddy at the notion that Obama is one step closer to being able
    to tell the GOP centrists to piss off. Is working with the Republicans a good or bad thing?

    Btw, Gitmo isn't closed, a stimulus package isn't passed, and Bush's first press conference wasn't 9 months in; it was in February. But yes, you're right...thank goodness Obama intervened with that crazy Bush executive order and the American taxpayers are once again subsidizing abortions in various third world stench holes. Whew!

    It is a good thing, and I hope it continues.

    Give me a break. The executive order has signed. Gitmo is being closed down. And the stimulus cleared the Senate. There will be the handwringing from the left and the wishful thinking on the right that the Senate and House won't be able to reconcile, but that's a bunch of hooey from both sides. You and I both know the bill is going through.

    You are right about that one. It was his second term that he waited nine months.

    The order allows the US to provide family planning aid to organizations, but does NOT allow US money to provide funding for abortions. The moratorium previously did not allow the US to provide funds for contraception to any organization that also preformed abortions.

    So Jeff...is that the way it's gonna be? BHO is NOT to be held accountable if Bush 43 did the opposite (or the same, depending on what the Dems need to bitch about) at ANY time during his administration?

    BHO said in his press "conference" (a staged address with planted questions...I loved it.....) that our current financial situation might not turn around regardless of what happens during his administration. Now if that is not setting us up to accept failure under his watch, I don't know what is......he's been in office three weeks and he's already telling us that failure will be the fault of the situation that he inherited.

    So that's what "change" is.....glad to know the current definition, 'cause that sure isn't what was being said when the campaign was going on.

    And I loved the comment from the woman from Elkhart, IN, who wanted to know when all that stimulus money was going to be coming to her town....did he leave them an IOU?

    A lot of people are afraid of heights. Not me, I'm afraid of widths.
