You Don't Tug On Superman's TARP

Howard Fineman calls him Super Prez, assuming the highest profile of any President since FDR and missing nothing:
At a private meeting with House Democrats this week, one member urged Obama to propose more money for roads and bridges. The president tartly reminded the fellow that he had voted “no” on the original stimulus package, which contained money for that very purpose.

“Don’t think we’re not keeping score, brother,” Obama added. There was laughter all around, but nobody missed the point: The president was at the helm, firmly in control.
