When the Post-Partisan Needs to Stop Being Partisan

Thursday, December 3, 2009

When should the "post-partisan" president stop being so partisan with his policies and initatives?

Well, it hasn't happened with his domestic policies to date - especially as he moves with a job summit and talk of a stimulus package (haven't we done this before?) to try and move the unemployment rate back underneath the double-digit barrier.

However, a good start to cut partisan ties with his party would be now regarding the wars overseas. This week's announcement to send 30,000 troops in an Iraqi-type surge seems to be a move in that direction.

And, if he continues to trump the whims of those driving the supermajority in 2009, perhaps he will be able to provide the type of leadership America is desparately in need of as we approach 2010.
