Obama Warns Republicans That He Is Going To Run Through Their Opposition

President Obama is putting Republicans on notice that he plans to run through their cynical politics and opposition during his final two years in office.

While speaking at a DNC fundraiser in San Francisco, the president said:

And one of the things I am absolutely determined to do over the next two years is not just consolidate the gains that we’ve made, not just move forward on new initiatives like free community colleges for young people around the country who need to be trained for the 21st-century economy, but part of my goal is also to restore a sense of possibility in our politics and our government. And in some cases, that means challenging folks who are practicing the worst kind of cynical politics, and a politics based on fear rather than hope. In some cases, it’s going to be finding areas of cooperating with Republicans. In either case, we’re going to need people like you to support these ongoing efforts.

I’ve only got two years left, but two years is a long time. And two years is also the time in which we’re going to be setting the stage for the next presidential election and the next 10 years of American policy. And so I intend to run through the tape and work really hard, and squeeze every last little bit of change and improvement in the lives of ordinary Americans and middle-class families that I can. But I can’t do it alone. And that’s why your support for the DNC is so greatly appreciated. And for those of you who have been there every step of the way, I just want to say thank you.

One can toss out the part of the president’s remarks where he mentioned cooperating with Republicans because Boehner and McConnell don’t want to cooperate with him. The worst kind of cynical politics is exactly what Republicans have been practicing since the president took office.

The country is into the fourth year of a Republican controlled House, and Boehner’s bunch continues to try to govern by demands and hostage taking. The Republicans haven’t learned anything from their numerous failures, so the odds are zero that they will decide to cooperate with the president over the final two years of his term.

Obama message to congressional Republicans was that he planned to stay on offense through the end of his term. This means that things aren’t going to get any easier for the Republican Party. This president isn’t going to sit around and run out the clock on his presidency. Given the president’s comments, his executive actions might be best viewed as a way of setting the agenda for the 2016 election.

The president is already making the case for Democrats to keep the White House while reminding Republicans that he isn’t going anywhere for two more years.
