Because Josh is completely correct here.
Barack Obama’s pronouncements on “compromise” are properly read in the voice of Starscream: thehill.com/homenews/admin…

Completely, perfectly, possibly even terrifyingly correct. Starscream’s personality more or less maps marvelously to Obama anyway: and I think that we dodged a bullet when he didn’t end up playing Starscream to Hillary’s Megatron. Imagine a world where this guy has been cooling his heels for four years as VICE President… and where his fanboys and fangirls have all put themselves in a proper tizzy because clearly Obama would have done better than the 6.5% average unemployment that the country suffered under Hillary Clinton’s first term. The Democrats could be in a position to conceivably win in 2016 under that scenario, in other words.
Well, there’s the lesson for the day: don’t rush things.
