"Peculiar thing about this document... it was never notarized."

After days of courting congressional Republicans (and weeks of watering down the bill to be more to their liking), President Obama finally saw the fruits of his labor. The outcome was not a surprise to anyone with a brain... the House passed the bill, with every Republican voting against.

Now it's off to the Senate, and another tough fight (tougher probably, Senate rules allow the minority greater flexibility to obstruct votes). Lesson learned for Obama? Stop wasting energy appeasing a minority party that answers to Rush Limbaugh; just focus on making your agenda the best it needs to be, and worry about getting the public's support only. I'll stop pretending my opinion matters now.
