Two Things Obama Should Do Right Now

To fire up and inspire his coalition, to neutralize the frenzied nuttiness of the healthcare Town Hall disrupters, and to discombobulate his opposition by forcing them to have to pick which issue they want to blow their gaskets over:

1. Announce his intention to suspend immediately the military's "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy while Congress fashions legislation to permanently dismantle it.

2. Encourage Eric Holder, his Attorney General, to appoint a special investigator to look into violations of the law regarding torture and to not exempt anyone, no matter how high up the chain of authority in the previous administration the investigation goes, from the consequences.

#1 is a great idea.

#2 will never happen. No current President will look to screw the previous one.

Good God, if those are the only things he needs to do "right now" then we are screwed. I seriously cannot believe that this nut thinks he can create a "make believe economy" as he is doing with the auto industry and it can survive without additional subsidies. His rationale is absolutely terrifying..... or perhaps, just deceiving. Either way, do you have any clue whatsoever as do how this will end? What will become of these auto companies when the taxpers quit subsidizing cars for other people? Hike on down the hallway to Business Economics 101 and if you can walk out under your own power after a 10 minute briefing, then you don't get it.
