    True motivation, there are alternate, plausible explanations for his actions that do not assume your personal prejudiced preconceptions about him.  You just are not willing to accept them because of course, you can discern his true intent, through you microscope, from here in the peanut gallery.

      Motivations are, as I have said repeatedly.

      I am judging him by what he does and says.  Even you admit he has acted more like an "Eisenhower republican" with the caveat that this is necessary because he must compromise with republicans as they are now.  I pointed out that there are many instances where Obama has acted like an "Eisenhower republican" and republicans were not a limiting factor.

      I can't figure out why you appear to be so invested in believing that he is a secret liberal or progressive in the face of overwhelming evidence to the contrary.

        But its curious how you only like to focus on any decisions or actions that you believe defy classic progressive principals, while denying those that fit squarely in the mold.  Otherwise you'd be forced to admit his policies as implemented are a mixed bag of liberal mixed with centerist to moderate conservative.  Therefore to peg him as a.conservative athwart, with the desire for conservative policies, is intellectually dishonest.

      Obama leaks news of a "cave."

      Then after the Business Republican leadership make asses of themselves, he has a Cabinet Member go out and hit 'em between the eyes with a 2x4.

      "No cave."

      This has gone back and forth for a year of it.

      Neither side of the Republican mess are capable of evaluating Obama's underlying tactics. They keep on rolling around in their own shit and mud.

      Sorry about that....
