11. I think we're BOTH operating from incomplete information.
But I'll stick with my original posting. Could Obama have played his cards better? Possibly, but even before last month, his so-caled "Bully Pulpit" was very limited. With a Lame Duck House? Even more so. I believe he's buying time by yielding ground, with 2012 firmly in mind. That's sometimes a sound strategy, and sometimes the ONLY workable one!

But I think we can both agree on this: A REPUBLICAN WIN IN 2012, WILL BE A LONG TIME DISASTER!
