    ...my guess is that the Republicans didn't see it coming that the President would, immediately after winning reelection pivot to...putting them on defense when it comes to Republican tax cuts for the filthy rich.

    His timing, in my opinion, was impeccable.

    After the 2008 election, the Republicans gave President-elect and then President Obama no honeymoon whatsoever (perhaps because he wasn't like all other previous presidents in American history who were afforded that basic courtesy?) Apparently, the President and his staff determined that Republicans would likely not give him a honeymoon this time and that he wouldn't give them one, either.

    The president is currently at his peak strength having won reelection. His timing was perfect, in terms of pivoting immediately to put Republicans on defense on tax cuts for the filthy rich. The administration's approach to this so far has me feeling...cautiously optimistic.

    •  True, but for all we know (0+ / 0-)

      Obama is just a prop for his handlers in Chicago who represent wealthy interests whose agenda is to create war, confusion and chaos in order to increase their vast personal wealth and real estate holdings here in the US and all over the world, particularly in the middle east.

      We'll see,  if he retires in the next couple of weeks back into his work as though it was just another ho hum job like he did in his last term we'll know that we were duped.

      A group wrote a book saying they were the chosen ones, they believed it. In one of their endeavors they displaced the people of a country, taking the best land, water and cities for themselves. Their book told them it was theirs, they believed it.
