Who would have guessed?

That if we elected the most liberal senator to the Presidency of the US and we gave him an unstoppable majority in Congress, that we would see the "post-partisanship" talk subordinated to his true agenda. The majority of voters rejected the truly post-partisan John McCain and what do we get?

Drudge leading with... "Rahm it through"

July 14 (Bloomberg) -- President Barack Obama may rely only on Democrats to push health-care legislation through the U.S. Congress if Republican opposition doesn’t yield soon, two of the president’s top advisers said.

“Ultimately, this is not about a process, it’s about results,” David Axelrod, Obama’s senior political strategist, said during an interview in his White House office. “If we’re going to get this thing done, obviously time is a-wasting.”

Personally, I don't think they can get it done because the blue dogs will have to abandon him if they want to keep their careers. If Obama insists on making this happen - again without serious debate, reflection and analysis of the legislation - he will have sealed his fate as a one-termer.
