    I think that the biggest failing of the first Obama administration was Obama's belief that there was a bright line between politics and governing, and that once he commenced governing, he didn't have to do politics - to fight publicly and constantly for his policies and for the social vision that they represent. He thought that if he only pursued good policies, that would suffice; his policies would speak for themselves; good policies were good and enough politics. I think he's learned now that that is not the case.

    The GOP can't win on ideas. They can only win by lying, cheating, and stealing. So they do.
