Only in your fantasyland. We don't have the man upon a pedestal( pretty sure I speak for most on the left here). TFA certainly acknowledges that he's been anything but a messiah, and has not had unilateral support on many issues.

  But, maybe you can clear something up for us from your side; whatever happened to 'even if you don't like the President, you have to respect the office"? That was such a common refrain during the Bush years, now we have the age of Joe "YOU LIE" Wilson. What's up with that?

I'm hoping that because he no longer has to worry about running for re-election, he whips his dick out on the table in front of Congress and tells them to line up and take turns sucking it.  He's got his two terms now, he can spend the next four years doing what he wants to do, instead of doing what he thinks he has to do to not rock the boat.

As utterly dysfunctional as the Republican House may be, they can still limit what he can do unless they get whacked in 2014. I doubt these 4 years will be all that much different than the last 4. Well, housing won't crash again at least.

Obama is the single most destructive thing that has ever happened to the United States.
That says alot if you're ever met my first wife....

He sure put a good insurance policy in place though.... Nobody want that dipshiat Biden in the drivers seat, so unelss they both get whacked at the same time, we're pretty much screwed.

As long as half the country is sitting on their asses with thier hands out waiting for their free Obamaphone, he will continue to run roughshod over the people of this country that have worked their butts off for everything they have.

God Obama save us all.

Obama wanted to be reelected, so he had to do everything possible to avoid looking like a stereotypical "angry black man". Now that he's in for his 2nd term, those superficial considerations aren't such a big deal. From the media's point of view, it looks like the gloves are off.

Good. Put the screws to the shameless assholes in the GOP. It's a party populated with nothing but plutocrats, ideologues, fundamentalists, and assorted bigots, racists, and xenophobic morons.

They're nothing but an insurgent outlier and should be treated as such.

He sits around in his big house in North Dallas, drinking a lot and playing Parchesi with his Secret Service detail. I have a lot of friends and colleagues in Dallas and they tell me you almost never even see him in the social news. It's like he has ceased to exist completely.

Considering that even Obama couldn't sit idly by if Bush was arrested in another country (as he's committing many of the same "crimes" you suggest), no country out there would be stupid enough to try and arrest him. Some may talk a big game, but they know it'd be a death sentence to try and detain an ex-President.

*sigh* You miss the point of Obama II. He is willing to compromise, but the GOP must make the first move. It is not that he can do or get everything he wants, it is that he is not going to offer up 60-80% of his position from the very start in an effort to "negotiate" with the GOP.

One of the things that happened in his first term is that he took a lawyers negotiating tactic, and that is to see what the opposition would find acceptable and come close to it. It usually involved giving up 60-80% of his position in order to try and get a deal done. Only problem is that the 2008-2012 GOP took that not as a sign to compromise with Obama and the Democrats, but a sign that they could get 100% of everything they wanted, sometimes even more then they dreamed.

As seen in this latest round of Bush tax cut debates President Obama was willing to compromise, but the GOP had to show good faith by compromising first. Because the GOP negotiated in bad faith in Obama's first term he will give them nothing with out getting something first.

The GOP played hard ball in President Obama's first term and even gave up deals that were a fiscal conservatives wet dream. They negotiated in bad faith, and they are to blame for the hard line stance the President Obama has to take with them in his second term.

You have him up on a pedestal so high, you are actually trying to play the "respect the office" card in order to excuse his obvious excesses.

The problem with no more Mr. Nice Guy is that the Republicans in Congress just enough power to make Obama's next 4 years completely miserable and unproductive. His street ball competitive streak may have gotten into the White House, but without the backing of the lion's share of the people, it will get him nothing from this point forward. Indeed if he pushes hard enough in the wrong places, it could also cause more than a few whack jobs to pop his top for him. I hope it never comes to that, by the way, the country is already far too divided and partisan already and that would probably be the nail that finally shuts the lid on the Republic.

Why couldn't he? That just means he can't leave the country after he's out of office as well.

The GOP continues to control the House largely because turnout in midterm elections is smaller, older, and whiter than in presidential years.

Noooooooo, the GOP continues to control the House because they gerrymandered their districts back home. By ANY rational vote counting measure they would have lost the House last November without gerrymandering.

The real reason we're seeing the emergence of a different Obama is simply the late-dawning realization that compromise is impossible with the enfeebled Boehner and his perfervid rank-and-file.

Look, I happily voted for the man, but this is self-congratulatory masturbation. Obama has gotten tougher because 1) HE GOT REELECTED while making gains in both houses of congress, and 2) because he doesn't have to coddle any voter blocks to ensure a chance at future reelection. Had the GOP made gains in the Senate and House he would still have been President Milquetoast.

Gitmo itself is indefinite detention which, by the definitions used against Bush, would be against the Geneva Convention and a war crime. Try again.
