The Republicans created a gridlock for obvious political reasons. If Obama gets a second term, would they work with him in that he, Obama, has nothing to gain politically since he bagged his re-election bid?

obama can issue an executive order any time he wants, and he has done so already.

so it is time for him to stop the "congress won't let me" BS.

we are tired of it.

No, because the 2014 midterm campaign starts on November 7.

You have to start with a valid argument. Obama got his stimulus passed. He completely blew it by using 95% to pay off campaign donors.

In 2010 the electorate took away his ability to pass much of anything and those who were voted in complied.

Obama is not getting anything more to spend. It's not going to happen. The GOP will make gains whether or not Obama wins and he will get nothing.

Unless the Republican's want to learn to compromise and work with the POTUS and the democrats in congress they are contributing to their own doom in 2016 and beyond. The better tactic would be to work towards compromise and get the nation back on track, which is what the majority of Americans want. Partisan politics might be a fun and game on capitol hill, but it doesn't play well with middle class America, nor will it in the next 4 years. There's a reason Congress has a 13% approval rating, which is a high in recent years.

We did what was available to do in 2010 and have been waiting for 2012 to finish the job.

All the liberal media talks about is how the Republicans have blocked "everything". It's funny that they never mention all that the Democrats have blocked.

Stop listening to the liberal talking points and parroting what you hear out to the world. Stop, take a breath, and *think*. It wouldn't hurt to listen to the other side now and then.

No good American will work with a man who wishes to destroy our country and turn it into North Korea...
We will fight him to the bitter end..
If re-elected, he will do so much damage no Democrat will ever win another election..
