“obama’s right, cranky liberals need to be more realistic”

by Susan Milligan

“Despite a toxic partisan environment on Capitol Hill, Obama has delivered on much of what he promised to accomplish. But it’s still not enough for the party’s cranky left flank, which seems to believe that the president can get whatever he wants just because he’s president…..


…So Obama gets a healthcare  package passed, succeeding where predecessors had failed for 40 years. The left is complaining that Obama didn’t try hard enough for a public option. Nice in theory; dead wrong in reality. The Senate would never have passed such a provision, and insisting on it would have left Obama with exactly what Sen. Edward M. Kennedy had when he battled with former President Nixon on healthcare: nothing…. …Conservatives hate it, and that’s valid. But for progressives to suggest that Obama could have gotten something more sweeping through Congress is exasperatingly naïve….


….Meanwhile, Obama has managed to sign into law a credit card reform package, an equal-pay law, and a financial services regulation package. The last item is another disappointment for progressives, who wanted a tougher bill. They might have gotten one written up, but it never would have passed Congress.

Grayson on Facebook: “Yesterday, Sarah Palin once again engaged in her chosen form of mortal combat – the tweet – by attacking me, and endeavoring to promote my Republican opponent, Daniel Webster, to Palin’s zombie horde.

What is it about Sarah Palin and Twitter? Is Palin fond of tweeting because she can draft a tweet on her palm? Is it that 140 characters represents the maximum length of Sarah Palin’s attention span? Palin probably doesn’t care much for the Gettysburg Address; it’s waaaaaaay too long to tweet.”
