Obama and his party run the Senate and the Oval Office. For 2 years they ran everything, and there wasn't a thing the GOP could do. Obama could have completely revamped the tax code and raised taxes in 2009. But, he didn't. He knows better. Boehner gave Obama everything he wanted 2 weeks ago. but Obama wasn't interested. Reason: he wants all taxes to go up. He wants to destroy the GOP. But, he is the President. And voters will blame him and his party. After-all, he is The Anointed One.
