I posted this over at Real Clear Politics, in response to an article by Robert Kuttner titled, “It’s Show Time for Obama“:

That’s a jocular comment when Obama says, “I won?” The leader of the free world can offer no better argument than the iron fist? It doesn’t make him come across like the kind of person who wants to heal divisions. In his inaugural address he said, “we have chosen … unity of purpose over conflict and discord.” Maybe his type of unity is achieved by shutting down dissent, which is what he seemed to be doing wrt Cantor.
