"Former President Jimmy Carter said Monday that if he were back in the White House, he would work with Republicans and Democrats to secure more funding for affordable housing and urge more flexibility in resolving differences involving the critical issue."

"I would work as harmoniously as I could with other members of the Congress, and with both Democrats and Republicans, to figure out how we can face a time of great deficits."

Not exactly from the Obama playbook.

The Tea Party types and Republican right wing has beat up on Obama unrelentingly and without mercy for six years. It's no wonder that he has hardened his positions.

What goes around comes around.

....and unfortunately the Nation is the loser for all of this animosity.

I agree, it is totally destructive. Right wingers only ever seem to destroy, never create. They complain, but do nothing that can be praised. Like most opposition parties they do nothing to help their country.
