Obama No Closer To Putting Up The Slightest Fight
As I said from the start, Obama's attempts to play nice with the GOP only gave them the impression he is weak & encouraged their viciousness as the smell of meat would wolves. And he's done nothing to dissuade that impression since. From a GOP point of view, strength comes from destroying your opponent, not reaching out to them.Meanwhile, we're not that thrilled with him either,
given we know Obama will never fight the GOP on our behalf in any way that matters
. They hate him just for being there, but we dislike him for being a naive coward. Which I guess you could call uniting the country, in a perverse way.
Obama, as I've said many times, is like George Costanza on SEINFELD in the episode where he becomes obsessed with making Jerry's girlfriend like him. She only continues to hate him, and doing this drives his own girlfriend away. This is Obama's situation.
And in January, whatever chance he had of turning this around will be gone with his pristine, unused House majority. It may be too late.
We wanted a lion, but we got a worm.
