Do you want to know what Obama's strategists are telling him? James Carville has just one word of advice for President Barack Obama: Panic.

Democratic Senators are the ones spoiling Obama's party. They aren't about to tax anybody, including the rich, with the 2012 election a little over a year away. You can blame the Republicans all you want but it is the Democrats that have their foot on the brake.

Meantime I'll second what James Carville is telling Obama. Time to panic Mr. President.

First Google 'James Carville panic'


"Democrats were in open revolt .... Democrats in the House and Senate stand for re-election in just 13 months, and their campaigns will be difficult enough without raising taxes just before voters go to the polls. Said a blunt Mr. Durbin: There are some senators who are up for election who say Im never gonna vote for a tax increase while Im up for election, even on the wealthiest people. - By Joseph Curl-The Washington Times Sunday, October 2, 2011

Read it and weep.

"More aides leave Bachmann presidential campaign"

I thought that was good news and was happy to read about it. I put her in the same box with 'what's his name' Jon Huntsman. Neither of them every had a chance. My personal current pick is Texas Gov. Rick Perry. He's not perfect but then again neither is Obama.

For what it's worth I'm truly sorry for personal attacks I've made on you in the past. Please accept my sincere apologies. Yes, we are on different sides of the political fence but that doesn't excuse nasty rude comments on my part.

I sincerely wish our leaders would band together in friendship to solve the problems that inflicting such wounds to our country. Sadly I can't imagine that happening.
