The new Obama: So much for mild-mannered

    How liberated, fearless and comfortable President Obama seemed at his second inaugural. It’s as if he realizes, at last, that he’s the president.

    After four years of trying ever so hard to compromise with the Republicans, trying to make deals that would have left the GOP having won so much of what they wanted, and run into a solid wall of rejection at every turn, Obama has finally decided to fight.

    Godspeed, Mr. President.
