    In other words, might as well be hung for a sheep instead of a lamb.

    The thing, he tried that. He got punked. Now it is too late to go the other way.

    Your children read CNN? Also "Chicago-style politics" used frequently even here, the author clearly used it satirically. .

    Also I agree with the article. Sick of Obama trying to play it nice, time to show pubs middle finger and push agenda aggressively without bullshit bipartisanship.

    No sure if it is about Obama leadership. I read it more like GOP is a bunch of ideological assholes and playing nice with them isn't effective.

    dont you get it .....people dont like having things crammed down their throats.....and i dont care how liberal you are or how conservative you are......if Obama was a "leader",which he isnt,he would have a good deal of this country,no matter your political persuasion,either on board with him OR at least willing to give him the benifit of the doubt,and go with him.....the Far Right will probably never back the guy,that is a given.....but Obama is only leading those who happen to agree with him....and that aint going to make the machine run smoothly.....he is a bad Captain at this point in time anyways....
