This is from yesterday’s New York Times editorial:

As soon as he proposed to pay for his $447 billion jobs plan with tax increases, President Obama knew he was going to do battle with Republicans. But he is also being challenged by Democrats because they cannot face another big pre-election fight or are thinking more about campaign contributors than the country’s best interests.

It is time for Mr. Obama to think about what Lyndon Johnson would do. Mr. Johnson did not flinch from confronting his caucus when he needed to, and neither should Mr. Obama.

When the Times says Obama should ask himself “WWLBJD,” do they remember what else Lyndon Johnson did?

    I`m really starting to wonder about the whole thing. The left can`t attack the first black pres. The left MUST (or is that MUCH ?) remain in power at any cost. Barry is bored with the "job" of pres. and is extremely disappointed that he`s no longer adored and it`s beginning to show in his marriage.

    I personally think Zero would leave now if he could get a King`s sized severance pkg. and no further loss of god-like status. He won`t resign of his own accord for the good of the country or turn down the nomination for a 2nd term. He IS that into himself ! He`s a real piece of work !

    I remember that speech (barely) and father's commentary. "Thank God !"

    Hahahaha. I guess having even a short term knowledge of history isn't a requirement to be a political or current events writer. WWJD has a brand new meaning now.
