Obama's Achievement of Change in Washington has so far come to zip
The stimulis package has passed through the House and despite The One's oratory he blew his first chance at genuine consensus politics. Not one Republican voted for it. 11 Democrats voted against it. That is big news. Not one squidgy Republican crossed the line.
Obama met with Republicans prior to negotiate a consensus and to sell the package. Some salesman - He made no changes following those discussions. The result is that Obama and the DNC will completely own the result.

Gore Still Lying His Way South
Gore's opening statement before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee today:
We are here today to talk about how we as Americans and how the United States of America as part of the global community should address the dangerous and growing threat of the climate crisis.
The weather in Washington on arrival...20 dead and many frozen.
Gore's fellow alarmist James Hansen of NASA has been punk'd by his former supervisor at NASA, Dr John S. Theon: “As Chief of several of NASA Headquarters’ programs (1982-94), an SES position, I was responsible for all weather and climate research in the entire agency, including the research work by James Hansen, Roy Spencer, Joanne Simpson, and several hundred other scientists at NASA field centers, in academia, and in the private sector who worked on climate research,” Theon wrote of his career.
Theon has publicly declared he is in the rapidly growing ranks of the Skeptics.
Arctic sea ice growth finished the year in 2008 at the same level as 1979.
The oceans have been cooling since 2003.
Sea ice is growing at the fastest pace on record.
A rare 50 year arctic blast is cooling the west coast.
Greenland's glaciers are stabilizing.
There are growing fears of a coming freeze worse than the ice age.
Alaskan Sea Glaciers are advancing for the first time in 250 years.
And, for the second straight year the Earth is, in fact, cooling... not warming.
Brilliant O is is not infallible after all
Having endured endless mocking on Letterman amongst others of Dubya trying the locked door in Beijing as "proof" of his inability to be Pres I have been rewarded with The One not able to remember the door to his own office. I'll bet this doesn't get the coverage Dubya got. Just proves the misogyny of the media.
The door is on the left Bam!
