I don't really know what the big deal is, except now we have confirmation that the Republicans met on the day of President Obama's inauguration and decided to vote against on everything that he proposed (maybe taking their cues from Rush Limbaugh). Cantor, Gingrich, Frank Lunce (sp) and others (Boehner wasn't there) hatched this bit of brilliance. The country suffered for it, and still the president restored faith in the United States around the world, saved the auto industry and the jobs of countless suppliers by insisting on restructuring and refocusing, pressured BP to set aside 20 billion dollars (with no cap) to pay for recovery of the worse oil spill in US history, stopped the US fighting in Iraq, killed Osama bin Laden in Pakistan, humiliated Donald Trump (the man who had sought to humiliate the president) in front of the Washington press corps, showed magnanimous compassion and the ability to bring the nation together in the wake of the shooting of Gabby Giffords, and finally sung as sweetly as Al Green, to Al Green.
