O'bama is correct to move forward on his program of pump-priming. That's what we elected him for - to do what we couldn't do for ourselves. Whether this program is the best for the nation is not yet clear. He is also correct to try to work in a bi-partisan way with the Reps. Doing that means giving up parts of the desired program or it would not be bi-partisan. Certainly cooperation is needed in a dire situation. But the deal is not to let the tail wag the dog.
