However, when the Pres has both halves of Congress on his side for 2 years

This is the part that drives me nuts.

Why did he try to negotiate with the republicans even when he had a filibuster proof majority?

The reason I have been told, is that he had no idea exactly how obstructionist they would become, and wanted to follow trough on the promise of changing Washington, and having cooperation.

If only he knew.
