Now that making Obama a one term president as a goal for the republican party has come and gone, it is not up to the party to make sure that their candidate, whom ever that might be, is going to be the best to govern the nation. That is going to be through action, not inaction.

That should be an interesting transformation to watch. I have no idea how I will vote in four years - all options are open.

An article I came across, I would provide the link if the desnews allowed that ...


Based on ThinkProgress’ review of all ballots counted so far, 53,952,240 votes were cast for a Democratic candidate for the House and only 53,402,643 were cast for a Republican — meaning that Democratic votes exceed Republican votes by more than half a million. …”


If this is correct, this means that Democrats revieved more votes for House of Representatives nation wide than Republicans did. It is only because of Gerymandering that they won more seats.

@spring street:

"the voters spoke clearly there must be a balanced approach that includes increases in revenue and a reduction in the budget."

You got that right.

The republicans should simply let Obama have his way re tax hikes. This will invariably cause the unemployment rate to jump and the economy to turn down. Then the Republicans can point the finger at the Democrats and say something like... 'see, we told ya so, now do you believe us.'
