The Bush2Cheney coup/reign was/is a horror sci-fi movie come true. The reign of terrorUSt$ does not end just because the stench of death and destruction of corporatist, militarist campaigns wanes momentarily in the impetuous winds of imperialism.
Beginning at least with Truman, every Democrat U.S. President has been no more than an interim official that periodically serves to help re-charge the reactionary whole of the Right, the leftward ideology of that entity comfortably housing Democrats in sanctuaries within the "Capitalism, The One and Only" temple of conceit.
Suffering through most of ten years worth of capitalUSt$' messianic Bush2Cheney holocaust, the real face of terrorUSt$ rule, the entire world was over-ready for a new face on terrorUSt$, Inc. That the B2Cs had engineered ...more like: an aborted attempt to get their Rubik's Cube to look like some one than a color-blind or fully blinded source of intelligence had manipulated it... and delivered ---more like: dumped--- the results of catastrophic domestic and foreign policies and actions onto the backs of the never-quite-ready-to-aggressively-lead Democrats appears to not be a conscious Republican strategy. Instead, these scenes, in this "sharing-the-power" tragicomedy that is the republic, reveal built-in mechanisms of representative democracy in a corporatist republic that afford no quarters for ideological representation that is other than corporatist Capitalist, inherently militarUSt$.

Left, Over State of the Union Viewpoints
draft of a Left view of the state of corporatist republic composed before the republic's formal State of the Union presentations from the Left of center Right (Obama) and the Right of center Right (Ryan), center of Right being corporatists' United States.
~~ adopting a long range view:
---disarmament starts in the homeland; disarm, disband cilvilian militias; ban personal possession of ammunitions but for licensed hunting and target practice purposes.
----ban "hate-mongering" through FCC-licensed communication enterprises
----federal and state bankruptcy declarations requiring reconstitution of governments to allowing for the de-weaponized evolution of democracy, de-privitization of land and natural resources, providing for increasingly self-sustainable economies and habitats respectful of the diversity of Life and human rights
----discouraging invocation of the word "God" or other such alleged deities in political discourse
