And from Eschaton

One of my all-time favorites, where I cut my milk teeth on political grassroots blog reading

Ra Ra 
Critics and presidential contenders say Obama is "weak" on foreign policy, yet under his presidency, the Seals and the CIA have taken out Bin Laden and now Quaddafi is gone:
 Republicans largely cheered on Thursday the apparent killing of Libyan leader Moammar Khaddafy, though a number of the party's standard-bearers had expressed initial criticism of President Barack Obama's action to help remove the dictator from power
Khaddafy's death after being deposed in August, would seem, at first glance, to provide some measure of validation to  Obama's strategy in Libya. The president authorized the U.S. to join in limited airstrikes with NATO in consultation with international partners and institutions.
That decision won him little praise from the GOP, and opposition even from members of his own party, and especially the GOP presidential hopefuls vying for Obama's job.

Reform Vs Repeal

Interesting overview on the topic here:
Republicans will now have the power to block funding for many parts of the overhaul, and block funding they surely will. There has been a massive seat swing in the House (239/196) which will embolden the new House to assert all their might and power. PPACA will not likely be repealed in this Congress, so 2012 could be a potential tipping point when more Senate Democrats (20) are up for re-election, as compared with 6 Republican Senators.
