President Obama has received no end of grief over his rush to compromise right out of the gate. I have felt all along that this was due to his insistence when campaigning that he would change the tone of the debate in Washington.
For some time now it has been more than clear that it takes two to change the tone and that the Republicans were not participating.
So now Obama is finally putting bills with progressive ideas in them on the table and insisting that they be passed, as well as bringing out the veto threat in what seems a more serious way than previous.
So how long will it take before a Republican accuses Obama of breaking his campaign promises to change the tone in Washington?
