More evidence that Obama has more brains than most of the rest of the Democratic Party.

Nancy Pelosi, first of all, would like to repeal the Bush tax cuts on wealthy Americans before they expire in 2010.  Obama wants no part of that.  Why?  Because Obama realizes that it would hurt the economy to raise taxes, even on the rich, in time of deep recession.  It is just common sense.

Second, Pelosi and her allies would like to start widespread investigations into the Bush administration on a multitude of issues.  Obama doesn’t want involvement in that either.  Why?  First, Obama has promised to be a ‘post partisan’.  Well, waging political investigations makes it very hard to promote bipartisanship.  Second, hearings such as these would suck all the oxygen out of Washington.  It would become the legislative focus, instead of Obama’s policy initiatives.  Congress has shown they can rarely get one thing right at a time, let alone two.  Obama’s proposals would be dead in the water.

Obama again is showing his ability to use common sense, something that is sorely lacking in Washington, and certainly missing in the Democratic Party.
