    The Christmas miracle being that Republicans finally dropped their opposition to providing last-ditch health care coverage for American heros?

    You know, I'm not very happy with the tax cut extension and there are other things that Obama has and has not done that I'm not happy with, but, man, he sure accomplished a lot in two years.

    I am really amazed.

    I guess the reports of Obama's and Reid's deaths were greatly exaggerated.

    Reid owes his career to the T.E.A. party, plain and simple. Haha, Sharron Angle's campaign . . . oh man.

    Good news on both counts.

    Obviously the Republicans eventually realized that obstructing the 9/11 health bill was a PR disaster in the making. I'm only surprised it took that long for them to figure it out.

    Pretty much my feelings.

    I wonder how much the fast turnaround on START and the responders bill came about only because Harry Reid wouldn't let the Republicans go home for Christmas.

    Hmm- you should talk to Cindy McCain and find out what her problem is since she caved to her husband on DADT, making her look like a fool.

    I'm separated, so I would hardy call myself an expert in family dynamics. :D

    I would not be surprised if Mr McCain found himself in the same boat soon.

    Hell of a lame duck session, isn't it? :D Seriously, we're getting more done in these last few weeks than all last year (minus health care) it feels like. :p

    Yeah, the Obama Administration is doing a hell of a job, whether you agree with their politics or not. They're getting **** done, and that's what the public really elected him to do.
