President’s Question Time and the 2012 campaign

In question time with the Republican congresscritters, Obama showed that he knows exactly what they are up to, and even pointed out to they are painting themselves into a corner. At the same time he knows darn well that similar crap is coming from the Democratic side.

He’s not going to stop; it’s going to be like this for the next three years. He’s going to keep his promise that was the central aspect of the substantive part of his campaign, to work on the tone in Washington.

The 2012 campaign theme is going to be that he has begun to change the tone in Washington. That’s a prediction. Let’s see if it happens.
