    is that he wants to make everyone happy.

    It's the community organizer in him.

    I think he has learned from the first four years, that the GOP are a pack of dishonest, contrary hyenas.  Why he didn't know this already is anyone's guess.

      but there was little he could do.  he couldn't whine about it.

      he can't blame them. they are what they are.  

      he had to out-smart them.  he had to lead with their legislation, getting some things passed or else nothing at all.

      they voted against tax cuts.  repeatedly.

      if we can pick up seats in congress then this issue might go away all by itself.  if it doesn't, i do think Obama will be playing hardball his second term.  

      i don't know how but i get the feeling he is tired of playing nice.  i bet he has his counter punch ready now.
