For two guys so utterly bereft of vision, Stephen Harper and Michael Ignatieff could get so much if they just looked south.
Remind me. How long have Steve and Mike had their jobs anyway? Now, how long as Obama had his? Last Tuesday was pretty much a party day and, after all, it only really started at noon, so let's call it eight days all in.
Barack Obama has done more, clear-headed rescue/stimulus work in eight days than our best and brightest have managed to achieve in months.
The latest? Today it's goodies for the poor and financially beset homeowner. From the Washington Post:
A measure allowing bankruptcy judges to modify the mortgages of troubled homeowners, including cutting the principal they owe, cleared a key congressional committee yesterday.
Under legislation passed by the House Judiciary Committee, a bankruptcy judge could change the terms of a loan by reducing its interest rate, extending its length, or lowering the principal or loan balance. These are known as "cramdown" provisions.
"While bankruptcy reform may not provide all of the answers to this crisis, surely it provides a common sense and practical approach to helping stop the spiral of home foreclosures, which are not helping anyone," committee Chairman Rep. John Conyers Jr. (D-Mich.) said.
My God but these guys are making us look pathetic, even clueless.
