    But for his insistence to appear bipartisany and take mediocre steps while the public was clamoring for change, the GOP would never have had the opportunity to gerrymander to this degree. They were done and he gave them another decade of life.

      This is about getting voters out in mid term elections, which is when many of these governorships and state legislatures were taken over by Republicans.
      I think many people just didn't think mid terms were that important. Hopefully, with Scott Walker, Rick Scott, Rick Snyder, et al, people are awake and paying attention now.
