So Obama decides to go the “This $hit is chess; it ain’t checkers” route. Gangsta for the middle. I like.
It should be interesting to see if the mass middle will support him. Obama’s already painting the GOP as the bad guys. The thinking goes this way: my agenda that protects the middle class will go forward in exchange for giving the GOP what they want. He’s already painting the GOP as the party for the rich against the rest of us. In other words, he calls out the GOP on class warfare without using those words. On first blush, I thought this was terrible for Obama, but he just might be on to something.
Keep solving problems, Mr. President. Serve them fools!
