Barack Obama is worried about progressives’ ‘rigidity’ leading to ‘circular firing squad’ in the Democratic Party.
“One of the things I do worry about sometimes among progressives … we start sometimes creating what’s called a ‘circular firing squad’ where you start shooting at your allies because one of them has strayed from purity on the issues.”

“One of the things I do worry about sometimes among progressives,” he continued, “we start sometimes creating what’s called a ‘circular firing squad’ where you start shooting at your allies because one of them has strayed from purity on the issues.” More
Obama’s comments on the circular firing squad are correct but he doesn’t seem to realize or understand that he created the conditions for this firing squad. He’s also going to be dinged by it because it’s part of his “legacy.”

It doesn’t get any better than this, because Obama’s trying to play a moderate peacekeeper after all he has done is create division.
