It looks like House Republicans are finally starting to remember what a fiscal conservative is. The House Republicans didn't just say no, they said hell no to the Obama stimulus (read "pork") plan. Nary a single Republican vote was cast Obama's way and 11 Democrats voted against it. That still wasn't enough to stop passage of the bill but at least Republicans are standing up for the things they we put them in office for. For the first time in about a four years, I'm proud of Republicans for something they have done on the domestic policy front. Keep up the good work.
Maybe Obama and the Democrats in Congress will learn that "reaching out" and "bi-partisanship" actually requires making really real concessions to the other side of the fence instead of just paying lip service to the idea of unity and throwing a few trinkets the other way.
