And it's about goddamned time. After weeks of Republican stalling, the Prez had no other choice but to finally get out there, take things personally, and more or less say, "There's only one way. My way." We don't have time to fuck around.
Sure. The Republicans are going to complain. They probably won't vote for the stimulus. But they weren't going to, anyway. They're just trying to get in the news as contrarian voices, continuing the old Washington game. But screw them. Their starving constituents will see through the political bullshit.
So bravo, President Obama. While you have power and popular backing, you've got to use it. The Democrats need to pass this thing, ASAP. Action is required now. Talk is cheap.
