It sounds like President Obama is neglecting a strategy for his administration and Congress that the majority of the American people could get behind:
"They didn't send us to Washington to fight each other in some sort of political steel-cage match to see who comes out alive. ... They sent us to Washington to work together, to get things done, and to solve the problems that they're grappling with every single day."
Actually, I'd rather have the steel-cage match. I bet CSPAN would enjoy the ratings boost.
