What is up with Republicans?
A few weeks ago, Laura Bush came out and gushed about Obama's Supreme Court nominee. I thought, "Why? Why must someone like Laura Bush come out and be so effusive about this?" I let it go. It's hard to keep up with political outrageousness these days.
But yesterday, an AP piece quoted John McCain from an appearance on "Face the Nation" as stating that, in evaluating Obama's presidency thus far, Obama has "done well." McCain apparently used as a measuring stick how much Obama has achieved in terms of Obama's goals. McCain did note that Obama has advanced his goals without Republican support. The former is my greater concern, though surely the latter point could likely be debated, as well.
