The Audacity of Obama

Sadly, this President never ceases to amaze me. He came to power saying that he would be the post-partisan President. The President who would 'change' Washington DC. In fact, he has turned out to be one of the most partisan Presidents since the end of World War 2. After absolutely failing to create a budget that has any attachment to reality and after failing to engage in a constructive bi-partisan process to resolve America's debt crisis, Obama has reverted to waging class warfare against Republicans. Paul Ryan's budget was an honest starting point for negotiations and contrary to Democratic scare tactics, the only budget that actually saves medicare/social security for future generations. Crucially also, unlike the President's budget, Ryan's sums add up. Yet, Obama accuses him of wanting to wage 'social darwinism'.

The difference between this Obama and this Obama could not be more pronounced. 

It is now evident that the President only cares about re-election. For Obama, bi-partisan engagement is not an ambition, but instead is a tedious side show that stands obstructively in his path.
