Think about this. Obama has neither skill or the stomach for negotiating with the Republicans. He gives them everything they want and more. Indeed, now he's trying to outdo them on this budget cutting business (in the middle of the Great Recession, no less). Let's see the Congressional Democrats force him into negotiating with them. Maybe they can get him to fold like the cheap tent he's been in negotiations with the Republicans. Maybe not. he's been a Republican President in everything except skin color.
It's well past time for the Democrats to dump Obama. They did it with another Democrat who was in the White House, and that President had a lot more of a reason to call for support--Lyndon Johnson at least had some historically major accomplishments on the domestic front. Time for Obama to go, and if he tries to stick around, time for the Democrats to dump him.
