    Its amazing someone who lifts himself up , who manages to get to a prestigious school like Harvard is an academic egghead. Its no wonder our country is failing. People see someone smart who helped themselves and this is what they feel. When did it become wrong to actually be smart and learn things ?

    Thank you, stated better than me.
    Understand Jabare, if he tries to work with the house and they refuse, the republicans face a much better chance of losing in 2014.
    But if he honestly tries, and they honestly work with him, something will get done, both sides can be happier. You may not get everything you want, but neither party ever gets everything they want, that's the way the government works, it's built in such a way that encourages compromise.

    Frankly, the absolute best thing I expect out of this next 4 years is replacement of 3 or even 4 Supreme Court members, and I'm hoping for relatively liberal judges be appointed.

    I am hoping to take Boehner at his word that he will be willing to work with the President this time; at least they were able to muzzle McConnel.

    you win some, you lose some. sometimes, in order to succeed, you would need to go through failure. That's the nature of business. The article outlined that there's major successes as well.

    Fingers crossed, i've always been of the belief the country works better when the parties actually attempt to do things together.
    Well...except for things like when they work together to pass the patriot act and wars and stuff, but other than that, a positive thing.

    Huh.

    I knew they were bad, but I thought stuff like that just jokes, or exaggerations.

    And then you see things like this:

    I mean, using that logic, everyone unemployed now wasn't good enough for a job.

    So why the fuck is this guy blaming Obama for unemployment?

    The downside to this, of course, is even if we get a great 2 years of compromise and bipartisanship, it all goes out the window 2 years after that.
    But i'm prepared to just accept that's they way the country will always be.

    Because he's angry and his talking points got mixed up.

    They go the way you are suggesting, and the 2014 campaigns will go as follows
    Republicans: Democrats refused to work with us even a tiny bit and they ignored what you people want.
    Democrats: Republicans didn't give us everything we want and we didn't comprimise because they are stupid.
    Run that campaign and see who wins.

    Going two years with an agenda you can't get passed just because is incredibly selfish and stupid, if either party refuses to give they do a disservice to all of america, not just the half that voted against them.
    Added into this is the tea party should not be allowed to direct what the republicans as a whole can do, they should not refuse any comprise offered because it hurts the country.
    This takes both sides, you are suggesting they make it so nothing is done. That is horrible, that is politics for the sake of politics in the hopes that your side will win in another 2 years.

    Disagree. My point is that Obama has a clear mandate now, with his resounding win. It's not just Obama putting pressure on the House its America in general. Just cause you voted on Tuesday or prior doesn't mean you just go back to business as usual people should still be a voice in advocating the change and policies they want and put pressure on our representatives to get it done.

    I know people like to put everything on the presidents, but really I've seen the issue over the past few years as a congressional one.
