3. "that he assumed Republicans would like. They did not."

That represents something of a shift for Mr. Obama, who did try to guess what worked for Republicans in his first term. When he crafted a stimulus spending program to bolster the economy shortly after taking office, Mr. Obama devoted roughly a third of the money to tax cuts that he assumed Republicans would like. They did not. Likewise, his framework for universal health care included free-market elements that he thought Republicans would embrace. They did not.

It's too bad the "reporter" didn't mention the fact that the items Obama proposed that Republicans eschewed were the very same things they (the GOP) proposed themselves. But, since "the black guy" proposed them, they wouldn't have it.
