    Obama as the responsible adult tried to behave as such. Some of it might have been the politics of not being seen as the 'angry black man' or not I leave that argument up to others. But I certainly think in the recent past Obama has been much less willing to give the GOP any slack.

    •  Obama is starting to realize he can't trust the (3+ / 0-)

      Republicans. But, when he starts using equivalent rhetoric against them that they use against him every day, sometimes right after they get out of a meeting with him, then I'll believe he understands the extent of their hatred toward him and how to respond appropriately.

      Just doing my part to piss off right wing nuts, one smart ass comment at a time.

        instead of telling the public how he wants to hear the GOP's good ideas, Obama instead hammered it into people that GOP ideas are the very source of our troubles.  

        It's good that he can rise above the GOP's malignant attacks on his character.  But to let the GOP's tried, tested, and failed policies stand as proposals worthy of serious consideration is absurd.  Every time Obama tries to negotiate over these failed ideas he gives them credibility.  

        I remember during the 2008 campaign when Obama actually did call out the GOP policies for what they are:  failures.  I miss that guy.
