81. I didn't call them ineffective... I gave a suggestion to make them more effective...

I agree completely about the whiners. But I think there's some value in discussion that helps them realize Obama is not God-sent to resolve all of their problems. The response you see here is surprise because Obama has been right so often. He's become a victim of his own success. Once these folks come down to Earth and stop expecting Obama to load rolls of toilet paper the same way they prefer, they'll be the better for it. Realists make better supporters than groupies.

Regarding FISA, Obama has stated his position, knowing that he doesn't have the leverage to remove the telecom immunity. I think it's splitting hairs to point out he hasn't voted. But you're right, and I sure would love to eat those words of mine. You can expect a full, humble, dirt-eating apology along with a "FrenchieCat was right yet again!" post if they manage to get that immunity crap yanked from the bill -- even if Bush vetoes it. I will do it both happily and graciously, without being reminded, and I'll link it to this thread.
