Obama Q&A

Impressive Q&A from Obama with Congressional Republicans. It's a great reminder of how great of a speaker he is and how good he is at positioning his policies as "common sense." He uses language like "that doesn't make sense," which average joe can connect with. I'm interested to see what happens over the next year because he's in a bad slump and I suspect the Democrats will get crushed in the next Congressional election. But that will give Obama a political enemy to use as a foil. Right now, he's having a hard time getting his base inspired because the Democrats control the house. There is no bad guy right now, and every movement needs an enemy (sad but true). I have a hard time visualizing him losing the next election after two years of battling a Republican majority.
