The Obama Administration is Very Good.

President Obama is a very good president, with a commendable record of achievement. The Affordable Care Act is a huge step forward for our nation, both in justice for all and in reducing the costs of medical care. The "war on coal" is being waged by the natural gas companies, not the federal government. The financial firms that wrecked the economy before he took office are under better regulation. The wars launched by his predecessors have been ended or reduced. The auto industry was saved. And, as you can see below, the economy is vastly improved. If he had a Congress that was not committed to obstructing all government, he could do even more good.

It looks as if you will get your wish. If the Republicans take control of the Senate, the one-man rule of Harry Reid will end and bills that come from the House will be debated, voted on, and sent to the President for decision. As Jake Tapper reported on CNN tonight, a lot of Democrat senators look forward to the Senate once again becoming the greatest deliberative body in the world.

I think the actual Republicans will still be a minority in the Senate. The Tea Partiers, led by Ted Cruz rather than Rand Paul, will be even more obstructionist. I sincerely hope that Mitch McConnell breaks with the Tea Party, joins with Democrats, and actually governs. This will take more political spine than he has shown so far, but now that he has been re-elected (possibly for the last time) he might be looking for a legacy.

Thought you said that the Tea Party was dead?
