Yes, it’s true that Barack Obama has whittled away expectations for his presidency down to a pencil point. Just today, Obama announced that immigration reform is going to have to wait until next year, because the reform he scheduled for this year has turned out not to so much actually happen.
Let it not be said, however, that the Democrats, who control the White House and Congress for the first time since the early presidency of Bill Clinton, are not getting things done. No sir!
Let us, as an example, remember how Democrats took action last Friday to pass S. Res. 252. What? You didn’t hear about this Senate resolution? Here’s the description of it from the Library of Congress: “A resolution authorizing the taking of a photograph in the Chamber in the United States Senate; considered and agreed to.”
You see? Democrats in action! Getting it done! Change accomplished! Hope fulfilled! Photograph taken! Next item, please!
