On the other hand, LBJ was as different from BHO as it gets. From the arguably ruinous so-called 'Great Society' on down, in effect putting welfare and FDR's New Deal on steroids, Lyndon Johnson could get done anything he wanted done (except win the Vietnam War, of course.)

INTERNET/////Lifeofthemind:

Dan D,
Obama had a reputation as one of the laziest and least prepared Senators. Given the competition that says something. He was almost always late to a hearing and never made a meaningful contribution, resorting only to boiler plate polemics. At the UNiversity where he taught other faculty said that he was a distant presence not engaged in the life of the academic community.

gringoNOTE: Obama, in a word, is the nice dresser who is present, the male fashion model progressive who was carried into Harvard. then carried everywhere else. He votes present. He acts present. He even "blacks" present, (well enough for 95% of black vote.) He talks present, and gets teleprompted present, with that note of baritone authority not really earned, but embedded in his voice box.

No wonder he's aroused jealousy and still wide appeal and admiration. In the politically correct, drowning-in-debt, Wall Street/neo-com/media Republic his smooth, rather attractive emptiness took him far. He became Presentdent of the United States.

LBJ also had heart trouble, possibly because of Bobby Kennedy - a consequence of life in the dragon pit.

What is the chance Obama will veto a single bill, or even threaten a veto? His only chance is to oppose the Democratic leadership and develop new support at the grassroots level. Is he really an organizer? I haven't seen it yet. As Gringoman says, he is sort of a proxy.

DJ/Ummah,

Pentagon PC-enforced blinders re Islamic terror (as your links demonstrate so disturbingly) is just a symptom of the PC straightjacket in today's US military. Major Mac's http://www.militarycorrpution.com has been covering the sorry debacle for a decade now. The average American doesn't have a clue that his national defense has now been drastically affected by hundreds of new rules and regulations---largely because the Republicans and media hacks usually avoid the subject. One little example: if one said that a "bull dyke monster" has been allowed to run wild in the US. Navy, one might understandably be tagged as something like a "nutty bigot" or "homophobe," no? Certainly politically incorrect for the Speech Police. So let's forget such "slurs" and just focus on the actual facts of another case (with international implications, by the way, and even causing an accident in a missile carrier) now reported in MCC, a site that does real investigation and knows the military inside and out. What would the proper terminology be for this high=ranking female officer who the Navy brass has been too gutless and intimidated to deal with properly? (Think 'Grandma,' Imus's term for Diane Sawyer, will cover it?)

gringoNOTE: The US military is now unable even to confront Islamic terror?

Tell me about it.

Tom Friedman on Imus In The Morning, advises his Golfing Buddy – President Obama, to ignore the Tea Party Movement, and the Populism spreading across the country. Tom Friedman "Confused with a chance of Goulash"

Taken from youhavetobethistalltogoonthisride :

Obama should make the centerpiece of his presidency mobilizing a million new start-up companies that won’t just give us temporary highway jobs, but lasting good jobs that keep America on the cutting edge. The best way to counter the Tea Party movement, which is all about stopping things, is with an Innovation Movement.
-------------------

We are suffering from intellectual property theft in a major way, and little investment in US innovation. US students are finding it difficult to obtain graduate school training at major land grant institutions. Congress is involved in this.

To make startups possible, we would have to protect these companies, their patents, their trade secrets, and their staffing, and allow US students access to higher education. At present there is little movement in this direction, and the Chinese are aggressively moving to grab all secrets through espionage. In some cases US personnel are giving away our secrets in order to outsource companies. They are even saying that the Chinese can man robotic assembly lines rather than US workers. The Chinese are also dumping products under cost here, to destroy US competition. Clearly, there is no protection for US workers, whatever the technology. According to current trends, nothing changes this until Asian and US standards of living balance.

No one has lifted one little finger to change this situation.

According to the investment community, we have to fight back, to see who prevails.

So if they come here to attack our companies, then we need to do the same to them. If they block the importation of our products, we must do that to them. If they dump, so do we.

We need to take it to the streets, over here and over there.

We could begin by requesting random acts of deliverance. This would be a good job for ACORN - you know stealing their hubcaps, flexing their fuel lines, unplugging their keyboards, placing bad memory chips in their computers, and going to work on their neighbors.
