Obama has them.
Obama to GOP: ‘I Won’

The top congressional leaders from both parties gathered at the White House for a working discussion over the shape and size of President Barack Obama’s economic stimulus plan. The meeting was designed to promote bipartisanship.

But Obama showed that in an ideological debate, he’s not averse to using a jab.

Challenged by one Republican senator over the contents of the package, the new president, according to participants, replied: “I won.”

Kind of puts the "Chief" back in chief executive, doesn't it?

Now I cast ballots for both of them, but I really can't imagine hearing Al Gore or John Kerry saying anything like that. And unfortunately, since 2006, we haven't heard anything remotely like that from our Congressional leadership, either.

This is the first time in recent memory that we've seen any Democratic politician show some confidence in the confidence the people showed in him/her. Candidates win elections for a variety of reasons, but chief among them is that the people want you to do what you say you'll do. Unfortunately, the Reids and Pelosis can never seem to remember that simple fact, choosing instead to huff and puff and then fold like a card table.

There's a new sheriff in town.

Hopefully the deputies finally learn a thing or two...
