And then came his words this weekend regarding the lobbyists who will work to derail his massive and nation-changing plans with respect to health care, energy and a slew of others issues.
"I know these steps won't sit well with the special interests and lobbyists who are invested in the old way of doing business, and I know they're gearing up for a fight," Obama said, using tough-guy language reminiscent of his predecessor, George W. Bush. "My message to them is this: So am I."
I got chills when I read these words, because not only do I think he truly plans on taking on and winning this fight, but I think that in the end, on many fronts, he will barrel through victorious. And this is something that "liberals" (whatever we/they are) have been dreaming of for oh so long.
