  •  preventing him from being that (8+ / 0-)

    is exactly what the GOP has been working toward since the day he took office. they knew he had the potential to be transformative. their total obstruction to what he wanted to do, even reversing their previous positions on things like ACA, was never about policy. it was always to create a confusing atmosphere and false sense of controversy about the reforms Obama was pushing.

    it nearly worked. if he could have gotten a quicker victory out of Congress on ACA, its possible he could have gotten the debt ceiling done before the 2010 midterms. hang onto the House in 2010, and he gets his Jobs Bill passed in 2011, and the economy is shown to be clearly on the mend, and he wins 2012 in a true landslide.

    that's what the GOPers were afraid of and that's why they could never give him a victory on anything.
