    had been the President on December 7, 1941 he would have sent the Japanese a message that said: "We'll vacate the Pacific by next Tuesday, and have all our troops out of the Philippines by Saturday next, does that work for you?".

    I don't get him and his inability to "whip" his majority of Dems to do the right thing.  There are plenty of ways to get the "old-timey 'process-driven' Dems" onboard, including holding committee assignments up, not allowing them to introduce legislation they want or at least not supporting it... c'mon, this is such bullshit.  One of the reasons they were returned to the majority was to get shit done, and not have Harry Reid send flowers to Turtle-Man for his hurt fee-fees over filibuster reform.
