Re: “Reassessing Obama

There is an easy way to determine how "clever" our President is. While certainly things like "DADT" are very important civil rights issues, I suggest you follow the money. Obama gave up a tax break to the rich as a "compromise" his supporters say. But this comes as he talks about this creating a greater deficit. The "Tax Holiday" is coming at the expense of Medicare and Social Security. This is going to cost people lots of pain. Obama's health care bill that his supporters refer to as a wonderful thing, has resulted in a windfall for insurance companies. Those costs are going up right now...ask anyone who has received their new contract. Implementation of most of the bill doesn't begin for 2 years.
Thyere are lots of "feel good" legislation that the Republicans will happily exchange for financial benefits for industry and the titans of capitalism. (Oh, btw: Why is it that two years after the "crash" not one of Wall Strreets creators of these derivatives that were designed to fail and then were fraudently sold, hasn't been tried for any crime whatsoever?)
