Perhaps he has taken some of our lefty liberal advice.

How to negotiate with Republicans.

You don't; you fight them every inch of the bloody way.

We’re already hearing the usual defenders of these kinds of loopholes saying, “this is just class warfare.” I reject the idea that asking a hedge fund manager to pay the same tax rate as a plumber or a teacher is class warfare.

Bingo.
Obama and his advisers have also decided that this is a good way to appeal to independents, too.

Fight for the New Deal tooth and nail, pin the  tail on the elephant rather than the donkey and take the blindfold off to get a better aim.

Rather than tell them what you are prepared to compromise right from the get go; challenge the corporate lackeys to an all out fight.

This is the Obama I voted for and I hope he sticks to this line; so I'll do the the rant for him.

Bring it on you shills for the corporations, bring on cutting Medicare, bring on cutting Social Security; go on I effing dare you! Bring it on you bought and paid for assholes of the rich.

OK you want to fire up us lefties? Let's have a goddamned fight with the right. Fight dirty, fight mean and most of all fight smart and show the mass of Americans just what the Republicans want to take away.

The Republicans have been looking for a fight since day one, please let's give them one

Bring it  fucking ON!

;-)

Liberals are a little like the Celts, when we don't have someone else to fight we fight amongst ourselves.

Godammit Mr President give me someone to bite.

There can be no shared sacrifice without the rich joining us on the altar.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
