Six scary words: 'And not a moment too soon'

Cross that one off Obama's list.

The Health Care Reform Bill was signed without incident, apart from the G6 federal employee who suffered a hernia carrying the bill back to Congress.  Fortunately his Cadillac federal insurance policy covers hernias.

The payoff checks had barely cleared at Cornhusker Savings and Trust when America collectively wondered, what's next?

After the hard work "reforming" health care, we on the right hoped President Obama might at least take a break, or at least a deep breath.   Why not take Michelle and the kids up to see Promises, Promises on Broadway?  Gridlock in the New York skies and streets would be a far more salutary than arm-twisting legislators to pass some new redistribution scheme.

Alas, it seems that President Obama is eager to get back to work, as reported by a major American newspaper:

In the immediate aftermath of his health care victory, at least, there does seem to be real, not imagined, change in Obama's management modus operandi. Whether challenging Karzai and Bibi, or pushing through 15 recess appointments, or taunting those who would repeal the health care law to "go for it," this is a far more energized executive than the sometimes tentative technocrat we've often seen thus far. The pace has picked up - if not to faster-than-a-speeding-bullet Superman velocity, then at least as much as the inherent sclerosis of Washington will allow.

At last the mainstream media is warning us of Obama's tricks -- taunting American citizens, throwing down the gauntlet to our allies, pushing recess appointments to avoid the Senate confirmation process. 

Actually, no.  The above was in the Frank Rich column It's a Bird, It's a Plane, It's Obama!   Obama as Superman.  There's a scary thought.

Even more frightening is the comment Rich concludes with: "And not a moment too soon."  Frank Rich meant it as praise.   He thinks "picking up the pace" is a good thing, because radical change hasn't been coming quickly enough.

The stagecoach is out of control on a mountain road and some of the passengers are yelling at the driver to whip the horses.
