All about Obama - It's obvious that the liberals are pretty upset about this debt deal and feel betrayed by Mr. Hope & Change. But they should have seen it coming. The Republicans gained power in 2010 thanks to independent voters and President Obama desperately needs them to swing back to his side for the 2012 election. Barack is betting that the ol' "Yes We Can!" battle cry can whip up the left wing in a year but for now he needs to win back independents if he has a prayer for a second term.
