I’ve said for a long time that this kumbaya bullshit with people as stupidly craven as the current version of the modern Republican party is as effective as praying for winning lottery numbers.

Then I say to myself, “Self, he’s (Obama) been a step or two ahead of most for about two years now. Maybe we have a reminder of Clinton’s first budget vote coming, along with a nice little quip or speech about the economic strangulation we went through during the ’90’s.”

Update: Atrios as usual sums it up concisely.
