No because Obama will continue pushing his big spending, anti conservative liberal agenda. He's spent the last 3 years showing he has absolutely no intention of working with anyone who doesn't agree with him, why would that change in a second term where he has nothing to lose?

If Obama wins he'll refuse to work with anyone who isn't a sycophant and continue to blame every failure on Bush and the GOP even when he can't get enough votes from his own party to further his agenda.

Seriously, this got moved to the election forum. This has nothing to do with elections, it's about what happens after the elections. Please move it back.

The question then is what happens next? Can Obama and the GOP spend the next few years after that working together to solve some problems or will the GOP still just maintain their anti-Obama agenda?
Nice try Winter, but by the time this election is over I doubt the Repubs will be in any mood to put politics aside in the name of the Nation, Think back to 2008 and where it has lead us today, do you honestly think it will bet better or worse this time. I extended an olive branch to those I fought with in 2008, they were not interested, I will not offer one again, and heck I am not even a Democrat.
