The Realist: Glenn Greenwald of Salon

My experience has it that Glenn Greenwald understands the writing on the wall better than most DC pundits. Here he pulls the wool back from our eyes on why the president seems to be, actually is, caving to the GOPhers on budget cuts, taxes and other GOPher demands.

It's his re-election strategy, and he's counting on not losing progressives even when he abandons them. Who else are they going to vote for; Romney, Trump, Gingrich, Pawlenty, Palin, Bachmann, Paul and other assorted clowns?

Is this what is called "realpolitik"?
