     When in the minority. Suddenly they become anti-spending.

      Why, it appears they are all powerful.

      I mean, based on results.

      Patriot Act Renewal?  Check.

      Free Trade Job Off-shoring that Bush Jr. couldn't pass?  Check.

      Free Trade Job Off-shoring via Trans Pacific Partnership?  On the way.

      Linking Social Security to the General Fund (Deficit)?  Check.

      Keeping Glass Steagal dead?  Check. Well, in the GOP's defense, Obama's White House did say they were opposed to bringing back Glass-Steagal because it wouldn't help.

      NDAA?  Check.  Though in the GOPs defense, Obama didn't oppose it and reassured everyone he wouldn't abuse its powers.

      Bush Tax Cuts?  Check.  Of course Obama had no choice.

      Bernanke, Summers, Geithner?  Check, Check, and Check.  But Obama had no choice.

      Three Chiefs of Staff from Wall Street Banks?  Check, Check and Check.  Of course, Obama had no choice.

      Damn that obstructionist GOP.

      Hell, they even made Obama publicly state during the debates that Corporate Taxes are Too High.

      Clearly the GOP has total control and cannot be resisted.  

      It's the only logical conclusion.

      The excuses for Obama's behavior have long since passed the point of predictability neccessary to qualify as an absurd production of Kabuki Theater.
