Letter from China: Daley’s Ominous Departure : The New Yorker: " . . . So when a Daley concludes that the political atmosphere is poisoned, that’s saying something. As a predictor of bipartisan coöperation, Bill Daley’s resignation as White House chief of staff is as auspicious as watching the canary quit and tiptoe out of the coal mine. . . . But the appetite for negotiation is now nil. The President is “not giving up on moderation,” John Podesta, former White House chief of staff under Clinton tells USA Today. “He’s just giving up on the Republican leadership in the House and Senate. . . ”
The problem is, even if Obama wins re-election, he has to work with Republicans to get ANYTHING done. With the approach Obama is now taking (according to the New Yorker article), we will be assured of 4 more years of failed leadership. That is reason enough to not vote for Obama.
