Did you see the latest cover of Economist?

It shows Obama neck deep in water with the caption "The Man Who Use to Walk on Water"

The myth has died.

'Willful Perversion'
TPM Reader JEB, a former Republican Senate staffer, with some strong words for Senate Republicans:
You asked what people thought of the filibuster changes today. I think I'm going to be ill.
Senate rules have been around for a long time. They work. They work, that is, if they are treated with respect, and if the Senate's role in the government is likewise treated with respect by its members. If they are, instead, treated with contempt -- as mere tools to enable timely response to organized constituencies -- work in the Senate will grind to a halt, encumbering the rest of the government.
I can understand, though I do not share, intense disagreement with every Obama administration initiative and disapproval of every Presidential nominee to every judgeship or executive branch office. Willful perversion of the Senate's rules in an effort to ensure that the Senate passes no legislation and approves no nominees (at least in a timely way) is so far beyond my experience with the body that I struggle to believe news accounts from the place.
And willful perversion of the Senate's rules is what the Senate Republicans committed themselves to. It is idle to complain about Sen. McConnell as if he were holding up nominees and legislation by himself. Nearly every Republican Senator -- including people like Cochran, Grassley, Hatch, McCain and Alexander who have been Senators for many years -- has supported McConnell without cavil throughout this entire sordid business. If McConnell acted in bad faith by going back on a promise made last year not to obstruct routine nominations, so did they.
I hate the idea of changing the filibuster in the way that was done today. I'd rather alter it by consensus, to reduce the opportunity for future abuse by making motions to proceed to legislation and nominations non-debatable while leaving open the option of extended debate on substance. I'd also be open to addressing a legitimate minority complaint about a Majority Leader using his priority right of recognition to preclude amendments on legislation.
The problem is that Senate Republicans as a group have committed themselves to abuse. They have made it their policy. As Norm Ornstein has suggested, they leave Senate Democrats with the choice of changing the Senate's rules or submitting to paralysis on nominations to the executive and judiciary as well as legislation. That's no choice at all, and a commitment to abuse the rules is not one with which Senate Democrats could compromise.
I fear the effect of today's events in the Senate will be to alter the character of the institution, or to be more precise to make it impossible to restore at some point in a future a functioning Senate similar to the one I knew when I worked there. Not for the first time, it has been found necessary for Congress to sacrifice something of the future just to get through a present crisis; not for the first time, the crisis has been the product of deliberate, feckless choice.
Today has been one of the most dispiriting days in a dispiriting time.

if the judicial appointees had been moderates instead of radical leftwingers, the problem would not exist...

I think we should put aside our differences today and celebrate our great nation and it's people in remembrance of John F. Kennedy.
Tolerance implies no lack of commitment to one's own beliefs. Rather it condemns the oppression or persecution of others.--John F. Kennedy
Or I could just GFMyself
This is a day to remember the assassination of JFK. That is what the date is... isn't is Homey? 50 years ago JFK was assassinated? Lee Harvey Oswald was part of a continuum of left-wing terror in America. The murder of JFK was a bridge between the explosions of violence in the twenties by anarchists and by the Weathermen (O'bama's friends, aka Dorn and Ayers) in the seventies. Oswald was the leading edge of American left-wing violence. "It’s much safer to talk about magic bullets, than magical thinking ideologies that promise that a workers’ paradise is only a bomb away. "
"The left cannot make history come out the way that it wants to, but it can always lie about it. Its myths of the past are tawdry attempts at refusing to learn the lessons of history so that it will be given the freedom to repeat its terrible mistakes."

Lee Harvey Oswald was the stepchild of the left’s destructive ideas, the same leftists in the White House today.

"The need for change is obvious," Reid, of Nevada, said in remarks on the Senate floor. He said that in the nation's history, there have been 168 filibusters against presidential appointees. "Half of them have occurred during the Obama administration -- during the last four and a half years," he added.

No shyt! Meanwhile Charlie Crist is polling ahead of Scott. Should be interesting; also it looks like Florida is going to do the Medicaid expansion after all. Obamacare is here to stay despite all their whining and moaning and groaning.
President Obama killed Osama, ended the war and delivered healthcare! Not a bad legacy.
O'bama is extending the Afghan war and leaving soldiers as sitting ducks in order to secure the poppy fields.

As I see it, Putin took advantage of yet another opportuniy to make Obama look like an ignorant fool on the world's stage. Ultimately, Putin maneuvered Obama into a position where Obama has to help ensure the stability of the Assad governmen to even be recognized and participate in he discussion of the WMD issue.
This puts Obama in the position of being on both sides of the conflict. Automatically, the United States loses all credibility and influence. We become the clown in the room.
Assad needs support from Russia. He does what Putin wants him to do.
Putin is a real world leader. Obama is a shill and fraud. Those controlling Obama are rank amateurs. Putin is slapping them around in front of the entire world without breaking a sweat.
Obama has removed the United States from the influence structure of the world.
Obama simply declared victory in Syria and moved on to his ObamaKKKare triumph....

Leon Panetta.
If you recall the events of the day, it was leaked to Vallerie Jarrett that the mission was happening about 40 minutes before the SEAL team landed in bin Laden's compound, at which time she immediately issued an abort order using the authority of the president (which Panetta ignored), and then she summoned Obama from the golf course. Obama went to Vallerie Jarrett's office, then played cards while the writers prepared something to show on a teleprompter for him. He had to be photoshopped into the photos of the command center.
Now, how about you demonstrate you are actually interested in facts and go find for us the excuse given for the abort order Vallerie Jarrett issued. That has been hidden really well since the event, but you can still find it. Here's a hint. It's not on the White House web site.
lol! Psst! Jarrett is your CLAIM son.

I've already posted the CIA's station chief's account of how the bushie boy administration screwed everyone over.

So while I'm sure you're clueless about your claim, it would appear you've already been trumped son!

The Democrats are engaged in a conspiracy to have total domination over the country without any dissent from anything not part of the ruling elite class. Their view of the future is identical to feudalism, with elite nobles ruling over peasant serfs bound to the land. The RINOs are part of that conspiracy.
There, I said it.... conspiracy... conspiracy... conspiracy.
It should be obvious to everyone.
Yes, I know.
