Times are different!
Am I getting that right?
Yep. Times are different now.
I don't know for sure, but I suspect that Obama went against the debt ceiling raise for political purposes, in order to stand out and make his voice heard. He may have been serious, at the time, but he seriously knew that he didn't have a snow ball's chance to make a change, then.
Now, times are different, and he sure as h$ll isn't going to drop his signature measure, The Affordable Care Act. Let's cut some corporate welfare!

"Focus" you tell me? On what? Gee! Obama is caught in a contradiction! Are you surprised? Vindicated? Justified in defunding Obama Care?
