    Yes, he can do all this stuff with executive orders. Great, way to go. But we seem to be staying in the same mode as the last 8 or 16 years: cave to the Republicans in Congress and react, obediently, to the MSM and Matt Drudge. They're still trying to be 'bipartisan' on the stimulus bill, it will be watered down and inadequate, they're still drinking the Jonestown suicide cocktail on tax cuts, and it doesn't look like anything will change with healthcare anytime soon. They don't want to touch it this year because it's too ambitious and next year is an off-year election cycle, so they don't want to piss off voters who will fall for the socialized medicine lie again. Repeat ad infinitum. Plus, there won't be any Bush investigations and the AG/administration is going to capitulate with a deal to look the other way and the statute of limitations will expire.

    Obama said "I won?" Coulda fooled me. But I'm looking for any signs, besides easy-to-do executive orders, to change my mind.
