U.S. News Digital Weekly;6/7/2013, Vol. 5 Issue 23, p4
The article discusses the division within U.S. Republicans on the way they see U.S. President Barack Obama. Some see him as the reincarnation of impeached Republican president Richard Nixon while others wonder if he is the happy Franklin D. Roosevelt who sought to fill up the U.S. Supreme Court with justices to get more support for his domestic agenda. It says that the relationship between Obama and the Republicans have deteriorated to the point of derailing tax reform and immigration overhaul.
