Not a single piece

Obama debates McCain, Oct 7. Eugene Robinson of the Washington Post writes a quick opinion about what transpired. It attracts plenty of comments. One, from someone with the moniker "brucerealtor", says in caps of Obama that he "IS HIGHLY ARTICULATE BUT WITH NO HISTORY OF WORKING ACROSS THE ISLE [sic] WITH THE REPUBLICANS AND WITH NO HISTORY OF EVEN INTRODUCING A SINGLE PIECE OF LEGISLATION."

23 minutes later, someone with the moniker "fortheclueless" posts this:

There was a discussion on this topic a few months back.

McCain passed several resolutions and worked across the aisle because he had planned his run for Presidency.

It is well known that all of Obama's resolutions lack substance. Most of them are symbolic resolutions honoring someone or expressing support. They do nothing substantial.

This election is a sad one for America - two bad choices.
