Original message Obama is totally playing the Republicans, and doing a fine job at it. Edited on Thu Mar-24-11 05:36 PM by Atman
Bush got caught lying about the GOP's favorite war. Along the way, he made countless stupid, counter-productive comments that entrenched him, backed him into a corner, and embarrassed the nation ("Bring 'em on!" "Nope, no WMD under here!"). (Is Bush still President???? I thought not...) Obama, OTOH, is carefully measuring his words, not playing into their hands. Letting the so-called GOP "leaders" make laughing stocks of themselves with Gingrichy flip-flops and brazen hypocrisy. I'm not thrilled with everything Obama is doing, but one thing he is doing well lately is exposing the child-like thinking and tactics of the GOP.
My support for President Obama has had some ebbs and flows since the happy "Change" days, but right now he seems to be playing them like a fiddle.
I like that. I work in political advertising. These Republican clowns are writing my material for me!

Just keep telling yourself "Obama is a Genus!" there Atman...
I'm sure there are still plenty that will jump on that bus... :D
