    Barack Obama, he never really claimed to be nor did his record demonstrate him to be such a person - a strong progressive with a "kill" instinct.  He was a moderate centrist who preferred compromise and negotiation.  He has not changed.

      ....foreign and domestic.

      If he can't do that, he should go home.

        centrist politician.  Who are  his enemies?  Who does he represent?  I don't think people are being fair to him because he is exactly what he has always been, what we knew him to be and what we can reasonably expect from two capitalist parties.

        •  Depends how you define capitalist, I guess. (0+ / 0-)

          A capitalist should know that the sequester is a bad thing for the economy and he should do everything he can to avoid it, including risking a SCOTUS battle over constitutional remedies.

          At the very least, he should target his political enemies with the cuts, especially since the red states take more than they give and are therefore less important to the overall economy anyway.

        the hysteria that FNC would generate in its loyal following of sheople if the Villagers in the GOP were considered enemies (for simply wanting to arm domestic terrorists with assault weapons!)
