Lifelong Democrat: please get serious about governing

“Why does this administration seem so determined to head toward a potential crash and burn?” asks Ted Van Dyk, a long-time Democrat strategist.

Obama pledged in 2008 to end political and ideological polarization. “On taking office, however, the president adopted a my-way-or-the-highway style of governance. The unifier of 2008 became the calculated divider of 2012.”

“President Obama’s hype about the horrors of fiscal-cliff and sequestration cuts, and his placing of blame on Republicans, have been correctly viewed as low politics. His approval ratings have plunged since the end of the sequestration exercise.”
