Actually not.
Obama would have a much better chance of getting what he wants if he fought for it instead of doing infomercials.
The "fiscal cliff" is the best chance presently available to attack the deficit problem.
He already tried working with the cons and they got "belligerent."

Seems to me all he needs to do is show how the cons truly are and let the people decide whose to blame.
Yeah

With anybody other than Obama, the market would be much higher now.

Now it's called politically correct nonsense.
Progressive educations has been replaced by testing similar to what did not work in Japan in the 1970s

Wouldn't want to miss your reaction when reality takes a dump on your front porch for anything.

Again, I truly do hope I'm wrong. It will land on all our front porches if I'm not.

No one can know this, history does not disclose its alternatives.
Republicans can believe this, but they nominated Gov. Romney and he lost.
The race was Romney's to lose.

It's a big mess. That's what it is.

We can thank the liberal spineless mentality and the teachers' unions.

You're in favor of abolishing public education to be replaced by virtual schools?

In other words, play politics and let the economy crash instead of resolving the problem.

The mark of real leadership.

Here's an excerpt from that article which I'm assuming you didn't click on much less read...written by a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution and the William Bennett Munro Professor of political science at Stanford University.

Teachers' Unions' influence takes two forms: "They shape the schools from the bottom up, through collective bargaining activities so broad in scope that virtually every aspect of school organization bears the distinctive imprint of union design. They also shape the schools from the top down, through political activities that give them unrivaled influence over the laws and regulations imposed on public education by government, and that allow them to block or weaken governmental reforms they find threatening. In combining bottom-up and top-down influence, and in combining them as potently as they do, the teachersÂ’ unions are unique among all actors in the educational arena."

But did you know that more than seven hundred teachers in New York City in 2009 sat in what they called Rubber Rooms and got paid a full salary, received full benefits and had summers off just like real teachers - except they didn't teach?

And that it cost the city between $35 million and $65 million a year for salary and benefits alone? And that NY taxpayers forked out half a million dollars annually for security guards to keep the teachers safe (mainly from one another, as tensions ran high in these places)?

NYC was spending a fortune every year for seven-hundred-plus teachers to stare at the walls.

Shocking, huh?

SEN. RAND PAUL: I have yet another thought on how we can fix this. Why don't we let the Democrats pass whatever they want? If they are the party of higher taxes, all the Republicans vote present and let the Democrats raise taxes as high as they want to raise them, let Democrats in the Senate raise taxes, let the president sign it and then make them own the tax increase. And when the economy stalls, when the economy sputters, when people lose their jobs, they know which party to blame, the party of high taxes. Let's don't be the party of just almost as high taxes.

LARRY KUDLOW, CNBC: Some people have called that the doomsday scenario. Others have said,'Look, it's a strategic retreat on the Republicans' behalf.' Would you vote present for that in the Senate if that came up?

RAND PAUL: Yes, I don't think we have to in the Senate. In the House, they have to because the Democrats don't have the majority. In the Senate, I'm happy not to filibuster it, and I will announce tonight on your show that I will work with Harry Reid to let him pass his big old tax hike with a simple majority if that's what Harry Reid wants, because then they will become the party of high taxes and they can own it.
