    it is the way around the Reps. I wish he did not have to do it but he acted "above it all" in the first term. that givaway problem he had came from that place...that they were adults, he was the President, and surely we all will put our country before party. Now he's learned otherwise and has learned that THIS Republican party and it's messaging machine (Fox News eta ll) lies to the public. He failed mightily in not bringing the ACA to the people and explaining it and letting the Reps explain it ("death panels"). The Reps won that one and the reputationn of the ACA suffered. People were supportive of every part of it but when asked about the whole rejected it soundly, believing the Republican talking points.

    Tell us (I'm open) how Obama should do this better...how can his Admin not repeat mistakes of the first term, which many of us agree on? yet not bring it to the people in this way that seems to be "squandering the majestic dignity of the office".
    Obama felt that dignity before and it made him removed. The Republicans acted like Obama did not have that dignity though Obama did. IT didn't work out before. What could he/they do better, t hen? How?

    pls explain rusty machinery I don't get it nor what you are resisting saying
