    utilizing both parties.

    That was his consistent platform in 2008.

    I don't know why anybody should feel there is a need to deduce this from years of observation. It was his campaign promise.

    •  Even if it wasnt his promise (10+ / 0-)

      I'm not sure what his other option is.

      If you dont like the car dealer you are talking to, you can just walk out and find another place to buy a car.

      But it's not like Obama can simply find another Congress to work with.

      Dont get me wrong, there is plenty to criticize in how he deals with Congress. But when I see liberals say why he is dealing with this Congress or these Republicans, it's like they are acting like there is this more liberal Congress right across the street that Obama is ignoring.
