Response to mother earth (Reply #4)

5. I was disappointed too

but I am hoping something changed, a tipping point in his willingness to put up with the Republicans.

His lack of support from the hedge funders and other wall street financial sector may mean something as well.

This is the first time he indicated publicly this level of opposition. The economy is in a better place, and I think he realized how many people this time around were supporting him on raising taxes on the rich.

The Dems won the popular vote for the house but lost on gerrymandering - I think if he doesn't show some backbone he has no hope of winning the house for his final two years. Lame duck status can be a strength, as well as a weakness.
