Your ring to it let's get some perspective now from senior political analyst for him to -- Brit -- There is something almost depressing about president Obama's campaign to enact the -- he gains tax increase.
That will do almost nothing to offset the hundreds of billions in deficit spending he contemplates in the years ahead.
This is a man who ran as someone new and different who would take us beyond what he called.
The tired old argument to the pass into a new era not of red and blue America but the United States of America.
Then after shoving his two major initiatives stimulus spending and Obama -- through congress on purely partisan votes.
