"Obama Pro-Business Regulation Push Reaps No Political Dividends," is the headline over a Bloomberg News article. The article concludes:
The partisan environment in Washington means that it will be tough for Obama's regulatory slowdown to pay political dividends, Conrad said.
"There are some people for whom nothing they do will be enough," he said.
The point seems to be that if it weren't for partisanship, everyone would recognize that what President Obama has really been up to on the regulation front is looking out for business, and would give him the political credit for it. As the rest of the Bloomberg article points out, this is not exactly a widely held view, or even one much supported by the record.
