According to a new CNN poll, 45 percent of Americans say they will blame the Republicans–compared to the 34 percent who would blame President Obama. That margin of 11 percent is nearly four times the edge that gave the president his re-election. And 53 percent have an unfavorable view of the Republican Party. (Source: National Memo)

Obama's the President, it's HIS job to resolve the problems facing Americ. He's constantly, continually blaming others for HIS inability to WORK with both parties to resolve these problems.

President Obama can give RAISES to VP Biden, Congress and Government workers, but Social Security recipients?, the President is going to REDUCE benefits.

President Obama = Failing seniors

President Obama = higher estate taxes on dying seniors

President Obama = higher taxation on senior savings

President Obama = higher taxation on senior investments

Seniors are the largest group in the USA which has accumulated 'wealth' in this country, they are going to be dying off, so President Obama wants them TAXED to recoup HIS spending and HIS monstrous debt. The President has reduced Medicare benefits on seniors, limited medical testing for seniors, limited medical procedures for seniors. Seniors have to jump thru hoops for medical services.

Taxing seniors, limiting health decisions for seniors= President Obama.

4 more years of misery = President Obama

Thanks to George Bush and the neocons that supported his tax cuts and the democrats who supported extending it,is why we are in this mess.

The tax cuts should have never been enacted or extended.

Everything goes up it seems except wages.

Meanwhile state and local "fees" have skyrocketed.

Considering that this Republican congressional delegation
has been almost 100% against creating jobs in this economy and
has used the silent filibuster over 350 times to stop any
legislation they didn't agree with, it's not up to Obama to
reach across the aisle.

It's too late for cooperation with the Republicans.

Obama should simply tell them to get screwed
and let the chips fall where they may..

The GOP is detrimental to our national security. It is a renegade party bent on destroying our way of life. Vote Republicans out of existence before it is too late.

As far as the fiscal cliff, according to Lindsey Graham, there may not be much for Republicans:“Hats off to the president, he won.”

No, the credit goes to Bush, just like when the patriot act was extended.

Just because he endorses it doesn't make them his.

You left out a number.....again.

Obama and republicans 15% 15%+34% is..........49%
Forty-five percent of those surveyed said Republicans in Congress would be mostly to blame if an agreement is not reached. Thirty-four percent believe that Obama would be more to blame and 15 percent said both Obama and Republicans would be responsible for not reaching an agreement.

You're propaganda is hilarious.

Usually The People Walking The Walk Don't Do Too Much Of The Talking - Their Action' Alone Usually Spark Curiosity And Interest In Others.

Then They Will Talk When Others Approach Them And Ask "How Do U Do It Dude?"...
