The Republicans and the Democrats in Congress (House and Senate) are like two five years olds, fighting over a toy that neither wants to share.
Rather than stepping in as a parent might, trying to work out a way that both children can share and get along, President Obama instead steps in and acts like a third five year old child, also fighting and crying over the toy.
That's why he's a disgrace to the office of the President. There is no leadership. He just exacerbates the problem.
So far, his second term is off to a much worse start than his first. God help us for the next 47 months.
