One of the best headlines I could ever see on Drudge
!!!Obama revelling in U.S. power unseen in decades!!!





http://uk.reuters.com/article/motoringAutoNews/idUKTRE5...


WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Barack Obama is revelling in presidential power and influence unseen in Washington for decades.

Barely 100 days in office, the U.S. president and his Democratic Party have firm control over the White House and Congress and the ability to push through ambitious plans.

Now, with the coming retirement of a Supreme Court justice clearing the way for him to appoint a successor, Obama already is assured a legacy at the top of all three branches of government -- executive, legislative and judicial.

On the corporate front, the federal government's pumping of billions of dollars in bailout money into banks and auto companies has given Obama the power to force an overhaul in those industries, a remarkable intervention in capitalist industries by the state.

Americans are giving him leeway as well. His job approval ratings are well over 60 percent, giving him political capital to undertake big challenges.

2. And we have extreme GOP overreach to thank ...
Give them fuckers enough rope, and they will hang the whole lot of them ....

Really; The GOP stood by and defended|protected their merry band of neocon idiots till they crashed and burned on the tarmac of the electorate ...

Im a fucking traitor for wanting George Bush and his dangerous, criminal cabal to be stopped ? ......

FUCK THAT : I am a PATRIOT for that ...

Obama is a brilliant man, and shines like a million suns compared to the dark heap of cowpoo known as the Grand Ole Party ...

They deserve their generation in the wilderness ....

Revel in it, assholes ....

3. Make no mistake about it, Drudge is not an Obama fan
but I still think he would have been 10 times harder on Hillary.
