“Obama was convinced by the election and the tax cut deal that he cannot lose any of these fights”
That’s why he’s the Prefident*
*From online dictionary;
Pref”i*dent\, a. [Cf. L. praefidens overconfident. See Pre-, and Confident.] Trusting beforehand; hence, overconfident. [Obs.] —Baxter.
Obama is strutting around like a Pea-cock telling audiences that unless the GOP raises taxes all these bad things will happen, that they have to compromise and cave to his demands to raise taxes or ordinary Americans will suffer.
I got two Democrats here (neither white) who told me they are sure that Obama will beat Republicans again on this just like the tax extension fight.
One of the two who is really ga-ga about O repeats the MSNBC daily points by word and he predicted that the GOP will cave by Sunday. He also said this will create a civil war in the GOP, all stuff that MSNBC is saying word for word almost(that is why I watch it)
Of course by Monday he will change his story I bet :”Oh the Republicans will pay at the polls for defying our President. Everyone agrees with him.”
