Lame Duck, Indeed

Many liberals, myself included, have been very frustrated at times by this President, his never-ending quest for some “bipartisanship” and the compromising of principles that seem all too frequent.

Never in my lifetime, however, has there been a more productive, progressive lame duck session of Congress than the current one.  Kudos also to Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi for their tremendous efforts.  Yes, we’ve had to endure the failure of the DREAM ACT and the lamentable extension of unnecessary tax cuts for the wealthy.  On the other hand:

  • DADT repeal
  • Middle-class tax-cut extension
  • Unemployment benefit extension
  • START treaty
  • Food safety
  • 9/11 First Responders Health Care

Maybe this guy knows what he’s doing after all.
