The fiscal cliff, everything. Could be a pyrrhic victory for him.

The GOP still owns the lackluster, do-nothing, obstructive House, your steady diet of sour grapes hasn't changed that.

He faces even greater challenges than four years ago. He has to somehow engender a spirit of compromise in the legislature. I don't envy him the tasks set before him. I don't know if he really believes in God or not, but I pray that God will give him guidance.

Obama has not encouraged or tried to foster compromise. He's done just the opposite by blaming the Republicans in Congress for anything gone wrong in America. And elected Dems in Congress also do the same. With Reid tabling most of the House bills, there's not much Obama can do except EO legislation.

Obama ain't no Clinton when it comes to compromise/bipartisianship.

Going "Off the Cliff" will help make Boehner see he has to work around the Tnuts and build a consensus with the House Dems. By the way, that may send Norsquirt back to his mom's basement.

No, his more vocal supporters will still blame Bush with "well 8 years wasn't enough to recover from what Bush did in his 8".

He's owned it since his second year, I gave him the first two to get his feet under him and figure out how things worked in the oval office but now, you're right it's all his.

It's been about 4 years of FU, my way or no way from Obama. I'd love to see all sides work together and a true leader works toward that goal.

It will be interesting to see if Obama even makes the effort for compromise. He hasn't done it yet.

Until he stops blaming Bush, congress, and Fox News for everything, it will be difficult to take him seriously.

And yes, the current economy is thoroughly his.
