Me too JakeD,

But I think it's encouraging that he is willing to use his power & popularity to challenge spending championed by members of his own party - they won't like it - but what can they say?

I also find this more useful than clubbing the GOP (which is already on it's knees).

As I said before - the rise of popularity of Dems isn't because the party suddenly achieved higher knowledge and ability. It's because the Limbaugh led GOP ideology is in the tank. Gov. Jindal proved it once and for all. I just don't think you should shoot the messenger!

President Obama said it best:
The majority has to be inclusive but the minority has to be constructive.
