Roland Martin is giving voice to millions of frustrated Democrats who see Barack Obama has a larger Senate majority than George W. Bush ever had, in fact the largest majority in decades, and has not been half as effective at using it as Bush was with his majority.The difference, of course, is that Bush was largely pushing popular items like tax cuts and necessary items like national security. Barack Obama is trying to push the country left.Republicans can only hope that Barack Obama does take Roland Martin’s advice. Roland writes:
Obama’s critics keep blasting him for Chicago-style politics. So, fine. Channel your inner Al Capone and go gangsta against your foes. Let ’em know that if they aren’t with you, they are against you, and will pay the price.
Of course, Al Capone was killing people on his own team. So Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid might ought to watch out for horse heads in their beds. And Capone wound up in jail for tax evasion and died of syphilis. Given Obama’s rigging of budget, revenue, and unemployment numbers, we just might see an Elliot Ness type like Mitch Daniels take him down.
