    which together, make up north of 60 percent of all adults in the US, Obama had to make sure he was seen as a man opposed to gridlock, able to work with all American factions, ready to compromise to get things, anything, done, and in general, be reasonable and non-ideological.

    Republicans fell hard into the trap. They became rigid, self-contradictory, reactionary and opposed to ANYTHING which Obama proposed and rallied their dwindling base on attacks on women, minority citizens and civil rights.

    It is now patently obvious to anyone who cares to actually look that the R's are out on Pluto somewhere, and the rest of us, Democrats, Liberals, Greens and many Independents actually have some credibility for being RIGHT about a ton of things since 1980. War, the Banking System, the Tax System, and Civil Rights all fall into our category of being right about the consequences of conservatives.

    Obama, in this regard, is following Lincoln's script to the letter. It may result in a political declaration of the rebellious side much as the Civil War as they become more unhinged and exposed.

     At the least, there will be strife, and possibly blood until the violent and irrational right wing can be exposed and humiliated, some changed, some in jail, and some gone to other countries. The push has not yet come to shove, but it is very likely to in the next year.
