I think his personal views are progressive...

But in practice he doesn't seem to be. I sometimes wonder about his flipping on gay marriage. What changed? Has Malia confessed to him to preferring girls? I almost wonder if that was a calculated move. On the one hand it would alienate many Latino and black voters, but on the other hand were those same Latinos and blacks going to vote for Romney??? (don't think so!!) And it made him look better to his 2008 supporters who had become disillusioned with his caving on so many other issues.

Agree he isn't very good at back-room politics. Certainly not like LBJ or FDR. Though perhaps they knew where the bodies were buried, and Obama doesn't.
