Obama's Progressive Gamble : He bet his Presidency on expanding government because that's who he is.

The Wall Street Journal has an editorial on what Obama did in his first term:
All of these were deliberate political choices, part of his progressive gamble that it will all be worth it if he can win re-election. Higher taxes are already locked into place, ObamaCare's subsidies are ready to roll out, and the regulatory wave he has delayed past Election Day can recommence. He'll have put the government in such a dominant position that its new powers will take decades to roll back or reform.
Just a reminder.
