    Do a better job at what? Not sure I understand this article. So here is the plan for 2013-2016 for Obama....

    1. Raise taxes
    2. Raise taxes some more
    3. Redistribute as much wealth as possible from the producers to the non tax paying, non working crowd.
    4. Cut our military ...drastically by 1 trillion.
    5. Increase abortion - tax payer funded late term abortion.
    6. Push gay marriage
    7. Reduce religious liberty - especially Christian religious liberty
    8. Shut down coal production and thus jacking up electric rates as our generation capacity shrinks.
    9. Shut down oil production driving up gas prices.
    10. Open our borders to illegals and make it easy for them to get welfare - food stamps - etc...and overrun our border states of Arizona , Texas etc.. with crime.

    So why "exactly" are we hoping Obama will do a better job with one or any of these 10 agenda items? A "better job" would be to abandon all 10 and practice constitutional leadership but we all know that can't happen with a constitution hating socialist. The next 4 years are going to ugly and painful ...hard to imagine how ugly.

    LDS liberal - it doesn't seem that Republicans have had a majority in anything for 4 years. As mentioned above, the Democrats owned the House, Senate, and Presidency and look where we are. I am older and can probably weather this insanity but I truly worry about my grandchildren if things continue as they have.

    I'll Say!

    Republicans no longer have a mandate, nor the majority.
    If anything Americans are fed up with their obstructionism - and anymore of it will surely back-fire in the 2014 Congressional elections.

    The Democrats do not want to shut-up or censor Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, or Glenn Beck.
    on the contrary,
    They help them win elections!

    Hutterite, didn't the President have a democratic House and Senate during his first 2 years. I'm not sure you could ask for more help than that. It didn't seem to work that well for us.

    Do a better job? He has done a great job. We are trillions of dollars more in debt. We are a joke in the world. He can not and I repeat can not identify a shovel ready job. He has circumvented the constitution. His lack of any experience in any thing resulted in loss of life in Bengazi and he has lied and two stepped to cover it up. He has wasted money (millions on millions) backing business of political comrades. You know Solyndra and others. Yeh he needs to do better but maybe Bush did it.

    How does the right wing figure that Obama is a both dictator that does whatever he wants and also an ineffective weak politician that can't get anything done?

    Please, suceede.

    Starting the 2nd half, quarterback Obama receives the ball from center, he looks up and sees the same mean ugly faces of his opposition, ready to tear him and his plays apart. Stepping back he sees that many of his own team do not intend to do any blocking. His fans cheering loudly are many but suppressed from giving any help according to the rules of the game.

    With no one to pass the ball to, Obama starts to run he and finds his path strewn with the bodies of sacrificial opponents who would rather fall down than allow Obama to pass. The howls and boos of the fans only catch momentary notice of the opposing team.

    The only hope for Obama and his fans is that the opposing team will recant their unfair and illegal strategy and agree to play fair.

    Mr. Thomasson certainly has a problem with the facts.

    “...the 3 percent that already pay 98 percent of the taxes...”

    This is total fiction that any 3 percent of the population pays 98 percent of the taxes.
