Thinly Veiled Combat

Over the coming months, it will appear as though the Democrats are fighting against each other.

But don't be fooled. The antagonism between the Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, and the incoming President, on issues such as card check and raising taxes, is nothing but a smoke screen. Take today's interview of Pelosi by FOX's Chris Wallace.

"No rubber stamp" she claims, unlike the one Republicans gave Bush over the last 8 years she wants us to believe.

"Don't forget" she says, "the things the President-elect campaigned on are exactly what we've been fighting for over the past several years".

Barry will try to appear moderate with his tone. But make no mistake, the far left will be well-served and any appearance of legislative setbacks for their agenda is anything but. Obama will put up a thinly veiled resistance to Democrats, but only to further the illusion of him as a centrist.

They may not get everything they want initially, but the left will be making progress. One small step, by one small step.
