It's all part of the MSM's grand plan though. Articles like this are key if Obama is going to keep up the ruse that he is suddenly the most altruistic, non-partisan centrist since [INSERT NAME OF SOME MEMORABLE 'CENTRIST' POLITICIAN HERE].
President Barack Obama plans to play up a bright future with congressional Republicans by channeling his 2008 campaign message of post-partisanship in his State of the Union address — but the liberal wing of his party isn’t quite seeing the light.Now mind you, since Obama took office he has spent money hand over fist and up the wazoo, exploded the deficit beyond recognition, and vowed to campaign against the Bush-era tax cuts in 2012 - the same cuts he's allegedly "touting" now. And yet Anthony Weiner, Bernie Sanders, and Dennis Kucinich can't even tolerate lip service to such common sense notions of spending within a budget, reining in the deficit, and maintaining the status freakin' quo on income tax rates.
As the president touts spending austerity, deficit reduction and extension of the Bush-era tax cuts, some Democrats worry Obama will pivot too hard away from the party’s core principles and concede too much to the new House GOP majority that campaigned on destroying his agenda.
And they wonder why their party got slaughtered last November.
