Good Job, Mr President

I thought Obama's speech yesterday was truly courageous, particularly as the Republicans had to sit there and listen to themselves be lectured.
He mentioned David Stockman's criticism of Paul Ryan's fantasy budget, talked about not only raising taxes on the wealthy but left Republicans an out by talking about loopholes, and he even got Max Baucus to stand up with him, quite an accomplishment from the faux-Dem. 
He kicked off his re-election campaign in earnest, but one wonders why he couldn't have started that campaign on January 21, 2009?
