President Obama is displaying a more emotional side of his personality as he works to sell his second-term agenda to the public.
The Spock-like Obama criticized for being aloof has been ditched in favor of a president who tells personal anecdotes about his life, shares locked-away thoughts from his past and on several occasions has wiped away a tear or two in public.

Wow, wasn't that convenient. Just fell right into the President's lap...right at the lull following the election, and before he was sworn into office for his second term. Some dictators just get all the luck.
Right. Just like how dome would point out that the same thing happened with 9-11 and Bush, or in the converse with the Iranian Hostage Crisis and Carter.
But I digress.
What’s clear is that, given the rapidity of the Liberal response to Newtown there were things in place waiting for the right time to roll. Whether that time was after a week of the press suddenly focusing on gun violence, or after a tragic event is irrelevant. Things were in place to kick off when needed or possible.
