Hey, he had a good week. Obama appeased both his corporate sponsors with the passage of fast track authority for the TPP and the Supreme Court rewrite of Obamacare. Then he appeased the West Coast folks with the gay marriage ruling. Add in a couple of other factors which we will not comment on and there you go, the bourgeois, middle class, flyover country people are put in their place.

Obama began work on his to-do list on Tuesday, unveiling a plan to make more U.S. workers eligible for overtime pay.
He also tried to marshal business and labor to pressure Congress to renew the charter for the U.S. Export-Import Bank.
On Wednesday, he heads to Tennessee, where he wants to persuade lawmakers to take a second look at expanding a publicly funded healthcare program for the poor under the Affordable Care Act.
Love that renewal of the corporatist, crony capitalist, Export-Import Bank is high on his list.
What I’m more interested in is what is on his PRIVATE to do list.
