I think he has. The GOP is working to defend the white, rich vote by making it difficult for the poor to vote. They GOP swears they will see him fail AT ANY COST. The GOP is working to create a kind of "Aristocracy" based on wealth where only the rich have a say in government. The GOP is working to create a "new" class of people, who are actually corporations. The GOP is working to squeeze every cent they can get out of this country, as quickly as possible before people can rally to fight back. They have two problems. Their base, 90% white is rapidly aging, dying out and being replaced by blacks and browns. Hence, the need for speed. Get everything they can now. Obama is taking a page from Gov. Christie's playbook. "None of your business". A glutton who doesn't care what his constituents think. Right wingers make the mistake of thinking Christie is on their side because they everything as a "race" issue. But it's all about money and power, and less about race. The women he was talking to was "one of them", but they imagine it was someone like Obama. Someone who wasn't born here. Someone "not one of us". Finally, Obama is standing up to the GOP. Remember, they ran on jobs, then worked to pass "English only, laws against Sharia law, break unions and the right to bargain, abortion, voter suppression, gay rights and so on. Nothing about jobs. Because a divided electorate is easy pickings. The "we want him to fail" and "Let him die" GOP are "Masters of Division". Hope he hasn't learned too late.
