Obama Didn't Cave on Bush Tax Cuts

David Corn says the idea that President Obama "caved in" on the Bush tax cuts in 2010 is a myth.

"Obama didn't wave the white flag in 2010. He turned a face-off over the Bush tax cuts into an opportunity to enact a second stimulus that he otherwise could not get past Senate Republicans. His failure at that time was not that he mustered insufficient mettle; he failed to convey to the world that he had ju-jitsued the GOPers."
