    And if Mitt had been elected, we would be facing the same divided government that seems more concerned with political posturing than finding real solutions. And this you can be certain of, the Republicans are better at obstruction than they are at solving the problems of working class americans. So you just keep telling yourself what the Republicans in both houses of congress keep saying, our way or no way. Doesn't solve much does it?

    "Whether it was Hurricane Sandy and the need to spend on the home, whether it was the tragedy in Connecticut and took away the feel good factor — it was a confluence of events that led to a 'it should have been better' holiday season," said Dana Telsey, a retail analyst for CBS.

    We can look for reasons and blame it on Hurricane Sandy if we want but the real reason is that the American consumer is worried about the Obama economy. Americans blindly voted for charisma rather than competence and we will all suffer the consequences. At least I don't have it on my conscience that I was snookered by Obama's charm and voted for him.
