That's about it.

But let's add that they are unable to see past their tax shelters. My Aussie brother-in-law in a Skype video chat told my wife that one poll in Australia had 95% of Australians wanting Obama to win. I wouldn't be surprised if strong majorities in other advanced countries didn't feel the same. Maybe not that strong a majority, but strong majorities.

Personally I feel far safer with a President that works hard to pull us out of a massive recession than the President that drug us into that Great Recession.

As far as "trajectories" go, the Bush/Cheney Trajectory headed directly South. Anything is an improvement over that.

Oh brother. I don't even know where to begin. This seems to be the narrative I'm hearing emerging: President Obama did win fair and square, but it's because everyone is dependent on government on stuff.

Well guess what, there are lazy leeching liberals that are doing nothing good for this country, but there are PLENTY of good, hard working, productive liberals out there. I think you may misunderstand their message: It's not that they want to give handouts to everyone too lazy to work, they want to make a level playing field so that everyone has a shot to work hard and achieve their goals.

Liberals acknowledge that there will always be "welfare queens" and that is the reality in giving everyone a fair shot. A conservative example (just to make a point, I'm not condoning anything): we know military action will result in some collateral damage/civilian deaths, but we shouldn't stop all military action because of that. (for the record, I'm anti-war most of the time, I'm just trying to make a point.)

Now you are free to disagree with that line of thinking... but please at least understand what exactly their message is. Maybe it will make sense to you, and you might have a good idea that goes in that direction but still stays within the conservative line of thinking (aka, a compromise.)

America has been through much worse and will continue to do well. Despite a global recession and what you think is an ineffective President, we are recovering, slowly. Under these worse case scenarios, we are recovering. We'll be fine.

This coming from a right-leaning person... it just helps to understand the other side

Oh no, the less conservative candidate won twice. Hey listen. You've got to put up with your electoral defeats as well as your failures. It's how we built this country. Maybe you do know the true path, maybe you have information unrevealed to the world about how people who have never once even mentioned socialism and have never affected any serious structural change to the current free enterprise system are actually communists, or that assistance from the government hypnotizes people into voting for the guy with the (D) next to his name. Maybe you do.

But if you really value the creed of this country, you have to recognize that the changes, the improvements, they weren't made by the people who had the purest motivations and goals alone. They were made by elections and votes; ergo by people who had their own reasons, and their own opinions, just as much as the zealots convinced they were right.

Yes it does. the GOP is full of a bunch of self entitled crybabies, that do not understand that there is a necessary Ying and Yang and a pull between the two that establishes the balance of this Democratic Republc. a few years of democratic goverment followed by a few years of republican government is a good thing. It is when there are long periods of unchecked leadership that true disasters occur.

And from an Aussie perspective, it's refreshing to hear a Republican voter with a reasoned perspective.

The fundamentalist politicking of the teabaggers (I choose that term of derisions specifically, as I see many Tea Party policies as offensive as the practice of teabagging), along with the senate Democrats will have impacts outside the USA and compromise seems to be the only way forward.

I consider myself Republican and I respect the views of others. I have a few concerns though:

Looming tax increaes due to the Bush tax cuts expiring may slow economic growth. However due to increasing debt, I don't see these cuts being extended by Obama. Whether Romney would, I don't know.

Employers hiring less due to Obama Care requirements. You either need to reduce your workforce to less than 50 full-time employees or reduce their hours to under 30 hours per week. For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction

People like me who are otherwise healthy, seeing a huge increase in health insurance premiums. As a college student I can not afford this.

Increased government regulations making it more costly and harder for businesses to do business. It is to the point here in Iowa where you can get in serious legal trouble from the Iowa DNR (the EPA is behind this) for too much cow poop contaiminating the ground, even in a small family run farming operation. Things that haven't been issues ever before suddenly are.

And on a personal note regardless of which side you are on, I can not stand these young women and others on Facebook stating they are excited they will still get free cell phones and birth control. It is incredibly narrow minded to think that way when much more important things like the millions are still unemployed and the debt continues to increase.

The only thing that has died is some fantasy country that never existed where everyone has dyed blonde hair, goes to the same church, and smiles all the time.

This country is economically in much better shape than we were in at this time four years ago. We could be doing better, but when the GOP took the House in 2010 and flat-out said that they were going to make the country fail to get rid of Obama, well... that's the result. They thought that the American people were stupid enough to not notice what they were doing and would blame it on Obama. It was horribly cynical of them but apparently about 48% of voters fell for it.

They flat out said it, folks. So if you still think this is all the falt of "liberals" (and Obama is not a liberal, really), then you weren't paying attention.

But if you really think it's that dire, there are plenty of countries with more conservative economic and social policies. There's Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Iran (although don't they have universal healthcare?), Indonesia, the UAE, and if you *really* hate big government, Somalia. I'm not being facetious. As far as industrialized democracies go, we're as conservative as it gets.

Even with the possible fiscal cliff? We may be okay right now. But whats to say 6 months down the road we aren't in the beginning of another recession. I'm not out saying "Oh it's Obama's fault!" I'm hoping the WSJ and CBO are wrong about this fiscal cliff. But we are still in real uncertain times. Better than 4 years ago, but theres no reason to think it is just going up.

"The single most important thing we want to achieve is for President Obama to be a one-term president." We all remember that, right?

And then:

http://blogcritics.org/politics/arti...hope-obama-fails-just-took/page-2/

Quote:
David Obey, then chairman of the House Appropriations Committee, met with his GOP counterpart, Jerry Lewis, to explain what Democrats had in mind for the stimulus and ask what Republicans wanted to include. Jerry’s response was, "I’m sorry, but leadership tells us we can’t play,” Obey told me. “Exact quote: ‘We can’t play.’ What they said right from the get-go was, It doesn’t matter what the hell you do, we ain’t going to help you. We’re going to stand on the sidelines and bitch.”

Remember Boehner's comment after the first debt ceiling talks? "I got 98% of what I wanted." And then he turned around and accused the Democrats of not negotiating in good faith and not being willing to budge. But Americans seem to have really short memories.

But of more recent memory was the October jobs report. Remember the GOP reaction to that? A loyal party would be happy. The GOP was not. Outrage! Conspiracy! Investigation! They really need to work on their poker faces.

The circumstantial evidence is overwhelming. Of course they aren't stupid enough to say it outright, although I would love to see if they have it in their internal documents on strategy. "Leadership says we can't play."

Then there's this article, too. The Fed tries to maintain the economic growth and who wants to stop them? Well, have a guess: http://www.washingtonpost.com/busine...s/2012/06/05/gJQAht78GV_story.html

Reid came out and said it: http://tpmdc.talkingpointsmemo.com/2...ic-cantor-of-economic-sabotage.php

You can dismiss it as me being blindly partisan... except I'm actually not. It's just that the GOP since about 2000 has been so blindingly wrong about almost everything that it's hard to sound balanced. But hey, it's exactly what Barry Goldwater predicted would happen.

It happened in Texas in the 2000s. After the 2001 redistricting did not give the Republicans a majority of the House of Representatives seats - Tom Delay orchestrated a campaign to elect Republican 'super majorities' to the Texas House and Senate.

In 2003, the new Texas Legislature threw out the 2001 Congressional District redistricting map, and implemented a partisan Republican map.

Martin Frost - a Democratic Representative from Fort Worth, who was a personal enemy of DeLay, found his district broken into many small pieces - and Frost ended up running for re-election against another incumbent - Republican Pete Sessions - who won the revised district.

The Texas 23rd district was redrawn to put two Democrat incumbents running against each other in the Primary.
