I seem to recall fears of him "giving away the ranch"
he's a weak bully?
ONLY business?...lots of people seem to think it was quite a feat.
He ran on a campaign of negotiating with world heads and being a bully like Bush was accused of being. He ran as a 'unifier' rather than a 'divider' like Bush was accused of being.
Since this health care bill and the vote last night proved without a doubt that he was unable to or unwilling to work with the opposition (Republicans) without using Chicago politics in order to get what he wanted, and since this process was being watched by world heads, doesn't this send a message to those world heads that if you don't go along with what Obama wants, he will NOT negotiate in good faith with any of them, including Israel?
This is the ONLY 'business' that Obama has been able to successfully get into place since he took office....and the ONLY way he was able to do it was to cut backdoor deals and via threats to all of his own party that opposed him. I think this gravely diminishes his credibility of being a successful negotiator with any world heads, and why most aren't taking him seriously enough to be worried about consequences. No wonder Iran is laughing in his face.
