He's been busy, Rachel Maddow goes over the list and it's impressive. A lot of progressives are upset because of the things he didn't do and seem to forget what he has done. Even something as simple as removing the ban on stem cell research shows why we need a Democratic president over a Republican one. Obama didn't put the public option in the new health care bill, which is serious but no one has been able to do as much since Johnson passed Medicare back in 1964. Yes, there have been disappointments but I'm not sure any other president could have done more under the circumstances.

The head of BP is upset, the oil spill is disrupting his life. "I want my life back," he says. Poor baby. He should go to the bank and take out the many millions of dollars he made last year in hundreds, then take them home and spread them all over his bedroom and roll around in it. I'm sure that would make him feel better. All the inhabitants of the Gulf have to roll around in is oil.
