In the past 2 weeks, President Obama has forsworn the far right GOP and scored huge political points while strengthening the economy. First, there was health care. As readers of this blog know the far right (i.e., the entire GOP) has been reduced to incoherent rants and gibberish regarding ridiculous polls they claimed were published in the prestigious New England Journal of Medicine. They just made that up!
Here are the last three table of contents for the NEJM:
No poll! Only on Fox News does such a poll warrant publication in the NEJM.
Then came historic student loan reform. Who knows what ridiculous points they will raise against eliminating bank subsidies and instead "diverting" money to real students. I can hardly wait to see anonymous comments on that!
But, Obama was not done. Besides strengthening the economy by securing human capital and reforming student loans to eliminate wasteful federal spending, Obama took a page from the GOP and allowed more oil drilling off the coast of the US.
Here's the reality: the GOP is mired in scandal. They are busting apart. The far right has hijacked the GOP and really is behaving in a way that will alienate the middle. Plus, their leaders are spending contributions at strip joints.
Bottom line: Obama is about to open a can of whup ass on the GOP. Look for the Dems to extend their majorities. You heard it here first.
OK, back to the book.
