Grousing has commenced

As I just pointed out in a comment at the Perrspectives blog, surely grousing over Obama winning a massive victory on the stimulus bill in the House, but not having simultaneously treated Republicans like dirt, counts as a petty grievance. And supposedly, according to this petty blog posting, Obama is learning a ‘stiff lesson’. No, you numbskull—it means that Barack Obama isn't inclined to make an ass of himself just because he can if he so chooses.

What reality do these people live in? I’m surely afraid of Barack Obama learning hard lessons—I can’t remember anything the guy has said about educating children that didn’t make my stomach churn, this statement to Muslim peoples he made recently was meaningless dribble, and just what in the world is he planning for Iraq and Afghanistan?—but how can a person not have noticed that Obama’s way of conducting politics is, empirically, a huge success? I mean, it’s something that a person just has to stand back from and admire, and then try to explain—but that’s the scientific method, and I guess a lot of people don’t use that approach. They see a huge electoral success and an overwhelming legislative victory and announce that the President is learning a ‘stiff lesson’.
