    What no one seems to get is he says things that sucker Republicans into revealing THEIR nefarious plans, and sneaks stimulus funding into the bargain WITHOUT CUTTING THE SAFETY NET.
    The first stimulus was waaaay inadequate becasue Obama started the negotiations to the right of where he should have ended up. The 2010 election results were dismal in large part  because the economy was much less improved than it should have been - because of Obama's flaccid stimulus.
    He only got RomneyCare passed because he, once again, was trying to appease the Republicans by offering their healthcare plan as a starting point.
    Neither one of those were the work of some genius strategist. They were stupid moves. And they caused the general public massive pain and suffering.
    He is not some genius.
    He is not a saint.
    He is not a hero.
    He's just another guy in the White House that made some stupid mistakes in his first term and is finally starting to learn.
