Remember all that talk about "perception is reality" and "we create our own reality" the deranged GOP leaders love to bray? Apparently, reality is back in style and things quickly turn ugly when you fly in the face and teeth of reality. Here is a harsh reality the New Whig party can't ignore:
Twenty-four days into his presidency, Barack Obama recorded a legislative achievement of the sort few of his predecessors achieved at any point in their tenure.
At this point in his presidency, Clinton's team was still putting the final touches on an economic plan that had yet to be publicly announced.
At this point in his presidency, George Bush hadn't even had a press conference!
In size and scope, there is almost nothing in history to rival the economic stimulus legislation that Obama shepherded through Congress in just over three weeks. And the result -- produced largely without Republican participation -- was remarkably similar to the terms Obama's team outlined even before he was inaugurated.
He shoots... he scores....nothing but net! This is going to be fun.
