Fighting with a hard ball

Well, President Obama started out by offering his hand of friendship to those who disagreed.  It didn’t work with China.  It didn’t work with Iran.  It didn’t work with the Republicans.

But Obama is very smart.  He’s a fast learner, and he’s tough.  It also looks as if he may be getting a few breaks:

  • Scott Brown, the Republican who won Ted Kennedy’s Senate seat has bucked party lines and is going to vote for Obama’s $15 billion jobs bill.  The tea-party brigade are incandescent.
  • Joe Lieberman is going to support equal rights for gays in the military.
  • And Obama is going to try to get his health care bill passed by using a process called – ironically – reconciliation, which by-passes the Senate’s right to filibuster it to death.  He might even get the public option through this door.

Right!  It’s made my day.

I even think I’m just about over the flu.
