Obama Is Keeping His Campaign's Winning Promises

Despite the right's caterwauling and doom-saying, let's be clear about what Pres. Barack Obama is laying out in his first budget.

And what he was also up to with the stimulus legislation that addressed the economic crisis and the Bush administration's legacy of deficits and national, deferred maintenance:

Fulfilling his campaign promises.

So none of his bold plans should be treated as a surprise.

He is doing what he was elected to do - - not what John McCain, Mitch McConnell, Paul Ryan, Rush Limbaugh, Bobby Jindal might have done.

The country voted for middle-class tax relief, national health care, energy conservation, cleaner water, a phased-end to the War in Iraq and a cohesive approach to improving America's role on the planet.

He's striking politically while the iron is hot, which is the smart thing to do.
