Start playing politics? I have read your column three times now and sorry, but I must be missing your point. This president will go down as probably the first in history to do nothing but play politics. It has become quite obvious that every move this POTUS makes is cold, calculated and political in nature. From his statment on Trevor Martin to his non statements on "Fast and Furious".

While I agree with the author regarding Obama being afraid to fail rather than being afraid to succeed, I will disagree with his assessment that the Tea Party didn't act until after Obama was elected. The tea party movement began while Bush was still in office. The anti-deficit movement had been brewing already and it was TARP which was the final straw.
Chris Racioppo added this note
No matter what, Obama is losing the 2012 election. We also learned that he was not the right choice in 2008. Do we blame ourselves for thinking the Deomcrats were our saviors and leaders to a new America (which in hindsight was propaganda, a new America cannot exist until oil is depleted). I am independent but I will be voting Republican for the next 12 years based on what I've seen since 2008

interesting piece of writing
artpaul cartier added this note
Yea! Thanks for the concise analysis. I am a fan of Macchiavelli, too, but I'm not sure Obama has to go quite that far yet. A little straightforward, gloves-off honesty would go a long way to defeating gloves-off dishonesty. F--k bipartisanship. The Reds have used that as a weakening tactic to great effect for years. They're partisan; Obama and co. should be, too. Forget "reasonableness."

You have to tell your own story. You can't rely on others to tell it for you. Obama and Co didn't and paid the price in the Midterm elections.
