HIS RE-ELECTION ISDEPENDENT ON THE LEFT HATING HIM AS MUCH AS THE RIGHT DOES:

Why the Left Is Starting to Hate Obama (Jacob Heilbrunn, July 8, 2011, National Interest)

Both Krauthammer and Krugman are pillorying Obama for what they see as rank opportunism. But what president hasn't acted opportunistically? And if apprehension about the debt pushes Obama to become the first Democratic president to tackle entitlement programs, why would Republicans object? As David Brooks put it in the New York Times the other day, this is an opportunity that the GOP will probably never see again.

Governing is about seizing opportunities.
