  •  Politically, it's much more useful - and less (0+ / 0-)

    stressful - for Obama to let Repukes be seen as recalcitrant, lawless and delinquent.  If he starts invoking laws and loopholes and citing articles of the Constitution, he'll wind up alienating more people than he already has, rousing the devil of a somnolent Republican base.

    I've gotten used to this from him and his political ilk.  It's the most dismal part of his administration.    

    •  Bolshoi (5+ / 0-)

      It's clear that a large chunk of the electorate perfers "Barack the fighter" to "Barack the placator".  Acting unilaterally will be a show of force.  The Goopers will scream like stuck pigs--"dictator" etc.  That will only strengthen BHO's mojo.  

      He has crossed the Rubicon from cooperation to confrontation.  Ain't no crossin' back.
