    It would stand to reason that if you won a presidential election by a solid margin campaigning against cutting Social Security and Medicare - something that has wide support among Americans - that you wouldn't make that the cornerstone of the first budget proposal of your second term. Given his record of compromising with Republicans before negotiations ever begin, this not a shock.

    As someone who has been following politics since I've been able to read, I believe that the 2012 presidential campaign will go down into the history books as an perfect example of how an incumbent can win re-election despite all the conventional wisdom that states otherwise. A list of those shibboleths may find value somewhere.

    Dec 28, 2012 | American Reporter

    In the overall mechanics of transformative government, attitude is so important! Not just a simplistic "can do" confidence but the simple belief that government might - holy cow! - actually solve or take the lead in solving or confronting a major problem. Many GOP leaders or presidential candidates boasted during the primary campaign about how, on being elected, they would eliminate government departments left and right.

    A white Ford F-250 pick-up rumbled through town, a Confederate rebel flag flapping on a pole behind the cab; on the rear bumper were a pro-life and three anti-Obama stickers, the thrust of two of which are not fit for a family newspaper. It wasn't a lone-wolf protest; several cars, trucks, and homes in the area sport the same flags and messages.

    It would be too facile to say that Hurricane Sandy was Mother Nature's revenge for the silence of Mitt Romney and President Obama on climate change during the presidential debates. Had one of those gentlemen taken our suggestion to address the issue, that might well have been a game-changing factor on Nov. 6. But will this massive, deadly storm that's taken at least t50 lives and has left millions without lights even tonight make a difference in the presidential election? It's too late in the game for both candidates, but if President Obama wins a second term, he would do well to make dealing with climate change as big a priority as health care reform was in his first term.

    I am a believer in dreams, and when I had a waking dream a few days after the S&P downgrade of our national debt of President Obama packing his bags and leaving the White House, I was saddened for him and for my country. But the great thing about dreams, if they are truly predictive, is that they give you time to change the future, and I'm going to try doing that with this advice.

    After significant compromise with the recalcitrant Republicans who want to continue to give tax advantages to the wealthy while cutting significant social programs, President Obama has finally taken a stand on debt ceiling negotiations. However, in labor, wildlife management, and the environment he is still compromising rather than coming out forcefully for principles he and the working class believe.
