Others would (and will) view it as an indictment of the Republican intransigence and commitment to "no new taxes". They will view it as the "Grover downgrade." It will not be tagged on Obama but the honor will be awarded to the Tea Party & Republican Party.
It takes awhile for history to grade presidents. Time softens both glory and failure.
Obama should just chill out the rest of the way. More grey hair is not worth it. He's not going to win. Just take more expensive vacations courtesy of the American people. More golfing to make up for last weekend.
