Yes. For the first time in his privileged, protected and promoted political life, Obama is facing real and determined opposition. He has no experience or frame of reference to deal with it.
So, he lashes out and flails away.
Like a child.
But unfortunately none of that determined opposition is in GOP leadership. Cruz and Lee are the determined opposition and the Boehners and McConnells and Cantors are impediments to them and not their allies.
