5. Starting gate has been moved up using goalpost.
Obama wanted this done pre election, it wasn't.

The house finally passed a measure in the lame Duck session
knowing the votes weren't there in the senate.

The senate, as predicted, failed to pass two measures on same.

Obama came in with a compromise that is quite decent, considering
that it didn't even look like he liked it much.

So it only appears as the "starting gate" to those who dont want to
understand politics very well at this time, conveniently.
