Obama Unhappy Liberals

FILE - In this Aug. 2, 2011 file photo, President Barack Obama speaks in the Rose Garden of the White House in Washington. Some liberals think he caved. Unions are frustrated with his handling of the economy. Hispanics are bringing the immigration debate directly to his campaign's doorstep. President Barack Obama's summer of discontent has been marked by rumblings within his Democratic base over his willingness to fight congressional Republicans and frustration over the economy. Disappointed by the debt ceiling showdown, liberals want him to hold firm against Republicans this fall, push a bold jobs agenda and draw a line in the sand over taxes and protecting Medicare and Social Security.
