Yet the headline from a Karl Rove Fox News Interview:
Rove: ‘Obama Did Not Win Much of Anything’

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama promised to change Washington’s ways. Yet he is as caught up in them as ever.

It was just at the start of this week that Obama launched his re-election bid with a sunny video of real people talking about their hopes and needs. It was the very image of life outside Washington politics.

By week’s end, Obama was mired in budget negotiations, canceling trips and scrambling to hold off a government shutdown that would surely erode the public’s faith in his leadership.

That’s the messy business of governing. And this is how it is going to be this time around for incumbent Obama.

Beyond the vision for economic competitiveness he wants to talk about, Obama is seeking a second term while having to engage in the gritty, frustrating process of governing a deeply divided government. He got bogged down in legislative tactics in his first two years, even when he won fights like health care, and is now trying to avoid all that.

Then came this test of leadership. The White House says Obama ultimately got the compromise he wanted — a bill of spending cuts that he supported without having to gut his priorities or swallow policy changes he could not accept. When it all finally came together, the administration offered it up as an example of cooperation under the highest stress.

But it was an exhausting process that left people wondering why the government was somehow on the brink of debacle.
