    This administration is very smart. No one is questioning that. We're on level two, here.

      smart in setting an agenda and following it through in the face of determined opposition?

      Not sure if he has the inner fortitude to fight the opponent to a TKO.   He doesn't want to be seen as a fighter, except in foreign policy.

      But the Americans know that we need a fighter in domestic policy now.

      He ain't that guy, because he doesn't want to mix it up with Boehner.   But the people will lose respect for him, and we will be absolutely devastated in 2014 this way.

      Someone has to step in and be the bully-chaser.
