He will always be a historic President because he is the first person of color to reach that office, but he could have been so much more than that, if he had the guts to tell the PA left and Daily Kos types to Go **** themselves and forged a truly bipartisan administration.

He had more Republicans in his cabinet than did Bush, Bush, or Reagan have Democrats.

He has governed largely from the Right of center. Taxes have not gone up. Military spending has not gone down. Safety net costs have gone up, but then they did at the end of Bush's administration because of the economic collapse. The bailouts of GM and the banks were instituted and signed into law by George Bush, not Obama. The only thing he pushed through was the first stimulus, a tiny program like "Cash for Clunkers", and a cut of payroll taxes for everyone.

How you think "the PA left" or "Daily Kos types" are running this administration is beyond me, except to think that you are so far down in the Right hand end zone that even the 20-yard line looks "left" to you.
