And the man we voted for is finally stepping up to the plate. In the past week, he's delivered a passionate and forceful State of the Union, and yesterday, in an unprecedented move, took questions from the republican house. They tossed the usual "cut taxes" b.s. to get their base all hot and bothered, but the president quickly put them in their places through his unbelievable intellect and mastery of the issues at hand. Obama was forceful and called reps. out on their flat-out-lies. If this is the president we see for the remaining three or seven years, similar to John Kennedy, a weak first year will be outshined by firm leadership and the rallying of a country. I know these are still just words, but man does he appear to be turning a corner.
