Shower the People With Love

The ever less popular Stimulus Bill should be titled, Political Payback for Democrats Which Even the Clintonistas Weren't Crazy Enough to Enact. The Republicans and 11 sane Democrats in the House did the right thing and just voted no. Not so for the Republican Senators, who have a chance to stop it or at least amend it to the better. Under their sharp negotiations the bill for the Bill has grown, but not in a good way. Michelle Malkin is banging her head again and soon so will we all.

As an aside, Victor Davis Hanson wins the 'say the Emperor is naked' award for clear sighted criticism, long overdue. The bad spending and bad behavior of the Democrats was a given, but the terribly dangerous foreign policy being pursued by our President is worse, in less than three weeks, than I would have imagined. Very scary, kids.

Money quote:

At home, Obama is becoming laughable and laying the groundwork for the greatest conservative populist reaction since the Reagan Revolution. [Extreme wishful thinking that].

Abroad, some really creepy people are lining up to test Obama's world view of "Bush did it/but I am the world": The North Koreans are readying their missiles; the Iranians are calling us passive, bragging on nukes and satellites; Russia is declaring missile defense is over and the Euros in real need of iffy Russian gas; Pakistanis say no more drone attacks (and then our friends the Indians say "shut up" about Kashmir and the Euros order no more "buy American").
