Obama sets up another straw man to tackle.

“I’m not impressed by just being able to say no,” said Obama. “I think what will be interesting is the degree to which my Republican colleagues start putting forward an affirmative agenda that’s not based on ideology but on the very real struggles and pain that people are feeling right now around the country and how do we get this economy back on its feet.”

Um, Barrack?  Buddy?  Some of the Republicans have been putting forth an affirmative agenda.  The fact that you don’t agree with their agenda does not mean that it does not exist. 

Obama is great at torching the straw men.  Unfortunately, it doesn’t do the country any good.
