That's all well and good but the fiscal cliff is coming up in 3 mths or so and that's when compromise is needed. After all for some strange reason the congress is still Republican. While Obama I will grant you is not the best negotiator when dealing with the right, people like the "Boner" guy need start behaving like elected officials to make government work.
And you don't get it with this:
Boehner has made it clear, however, that he intends to stand firm against any income tax increases, which Obama's Democrats contend are essential to any viable deal.
Only the House is Republican. The fiscal cliff is coming faster than you think. The Senate and this president will make sure of it.

So why do you feel Romney failed to make the grade?
I actually think Obama is a pretty cool guy. I just question his leadership abilities.

I'm a little more concerned about the fiscal cliff we're about to go off. Look. You can almost see it from here.


You mean the Ryan/Boehner cliff? The one Boehner already said he would not negotiate?

The Republicans will want zero done to increase revenues. The Democrats will want to eliminate the Bush tax cut to the wealthy.

Boehner/Ryan will uphold their Norquist pledge instead of help America by negotiating.

They learned nothing from the election.

I agree with you, Romney always has been way ahead of the curve. He has a knack for that sort of thing.

No, more people of color need to be considered for post Obama II. Some one he trusts and has spent a lot of time with like Pimp with a Limp would be perfect in 2016.

If Congress can continue the gridlock, we'll probably be ok. The less Obama accomplishes during his second term, the better off we'll be.

After Florida's dog and pony show yesterday evening it's now absolutely 100% clear why the socialist Obama pressed for granting citizenship to illegal aliens.
