For four years, Obama quietly planned his re-election while getting many things accomplished. During the same four years, McConnell, Cantor, Boehner and the rest hooked their fortunes on obstruction, Rush Limbaugh and the Tea Party crazies.
The GOP set its own trap. Instead of governing, they choose a four-year campaign to unseat Obama.
Obama set the Bush Tax Cut trap in 2010. He also set the sequester trap in 2012. The GOP hoped that he wouldn't get re-elected which would render all of his accomplishments moot, including Obamacare.
He was re-elected. Join me below.
Their polls misled them. Black people, young people and hispanics actually voted and thwarted the voter suppression laws in key states.
Obama could actually do nothing and cut the budget as well as end the Bush tax cuts.
This would be sweet payback for the four-years of racist-tinged rhetoric, record-breaking filibusters and grandstanding.
We all sat back in frustration while Obama refused to fight back.
No need to fight. Just break out the popcorn and watch the GOP heads explode as they realize the trap he set for them.
