Why did he have to demagogue the ‘fiscal cliff’ when he had just won the election? Why did he have to jump on gun control with both feet less than three hours after the shooting at Newtown? You don’t think he or Schumer or Durbin really intend to work with Rubio on his plan do you? 0bama came out the day after the Schumer-Durbin-Rubio press conference and threw a wrench in their ‘bi-partisan’ announcement. This is a bait-and-switch IMO.
He wants BOTH goals....
His political agenda as law.
And, the destruction of the Republican Party.
He doesn’t need to compromise or scam.
