    still under the impression that Republicans cared more about the country than about their party. I doubt he'll make that error again.

    •  Hope you are right, think you are (0+ / 0-)

      and that he also learned about communicating what is going on and pushing back on lies
      I think it goes against his character/temperment but he's learned as he seems to be doing it.
      Obama is smart and open minded to feedback...it is an important quality in a President and he has that in spades...I see him change and learn.

      Opposite of GWB, by the way.

    •  He was also trying too hard,... (0+ / 0-)

      ...harder than necessary, to avoid doing anything that might seriously jeopardize his chances at re-election.  He nearly blew it with the debt ceiling battle that ended up sending his approval rating into a tailspin (as low as 37% by the now-tainted Gallup).
