    Even if candidate Romney does win this election (which is at least somewhat doubtful) President Obama is going to be the president up until January 20 of next year.

    And is therefore going to be responsible to a great extent for facing many of the greatest problems this particular country has ever faced. Clean up after Sandy Super Storm, vast drought conditions, the fiscal cliff that could leave the US in the worst depression it has ever seen, and if you believe some particular nut cases, the actual end of the World on December 21,2012, which would imply the Mitt Romney would never become president anyway (a position that I personally consider to be utter bunk).

    So, just perhaps all of the extreme anti President Obama commenter’s on these boards (such as you certainly are) might just consider becoming more moderate and cooling the extreme criticisms of our current president. If not for the sake of the great country that we all claim to love so much, but even just as much for the future president Mitt Romney, that perhaps some of us might not love so much.

    Or, am I being too reasonable for you and those like you here?

    Bravo, sir. Pity you had to sue such eloquence on so insignificant a target, but that’s what the Right is producing these days.

    Thank you for the kind reply! Hopefully at least, some of the more reasonable conservatives on these comments might just read what I said, and even agree with at least some of my points. This might even make the discussions here a little more civilized, if nothing else. Political discussion is far too important not to deserve that kind of respect at least, even for comments about cartoons!

    Perhaps……

    I am very afraid of what Pres. Obama might sign into law (via Executive Orders) between election day & Jan. 20 if he loses.

    @Robert Landers

    No, you are being unrealistic. The partisanship is so deep on the part of the American people they won’t be reasonable, regardless of party. Harry Ried has already said it is fantasy to think the Democrats would work with Romney. Obviously the congressional Republicans have already drawn their lines in the sand. The only hope for this is to dump the current congressional good old boy mentality, K street lobbyists influence, instill term limits and take our government back from the Washington establishment.

    My, my, you are quite full of yourself today aren’t you? Do a little background reading, like Alex De Tocqueville and his writing on democracy. His basic premise is that the electorate will find the political party that will provide the greatest entitlements and keep them in power until they effectively bankrupt the economy. At that point the political structure fails, leaving the country open for dictator like control. He makes many salient points that are already occurring today. Of course I have paraphrased and encapsulated much of what he presented, so take the time to read it. He who doesn’t learn from history is doomed to repeat it…

    @Ruff

    The problem is, both parties end up with the same result: they both grow the size of government, increase spending, follow the orders of the K street lobbyists and create an environment for economics and culture that is almost impossible to function in.
    Responsibility for our economic problems are our own. We bought all the Asian goods that were cheaper. We bought the housing with the unrealistic low variable rate mortgages. We ran up credit card bills and other debt. Nobody forced us. It’s just greed. Clinton was the one that signed the legislation/treaty that gave China WTO status and opened the door to their imports. Quit blaming someone else. We did it, even the democrats didn’t “fix” these problems and they had total control for two years, from 08 to 2010…

    You all would do well to start thinking outside the box politically. Look at the Libertarians and what they propose. There is no perfect political party but the two party system is no longer effective to provide us with leaders that work for the people and not the K street establishment…

    @mickey1339

    Mickey, I was with you until your last sentence. Yes, both parties are to blame, especially the multi-term politicians that were in power while the seeds for today’s mess were planted. These problems are so deep that they can’t be fixed by either party in 2 years. It may take many more years of bi-partisan cooperation. And that’s what scares me. We can’t even get bi-partisan cooperation on a single bill.

    Ima it appears your arguments have recently degenerated in quality to the point of brief sound bites, this saddens me and so I ask that you work to better your arguements

    @M Ster

    Many other countries have effective democratic governments that consist of multiple political parties. I know it is no cure-all, but term limits also need to be in place. Yes it will take years to fix, but we need the influence of the American people arguing in Congress, not lobbying groups that can easily buy influence and elections. History is full of examples of empires that followed a similar path to greatness, only to fall through repeating the same mistakes, thinking “this time it will be different.” The principles are the same, only the technology and the time line varies…

    I can’t help but wonder, when the president is reelected on Tuesday, if the right will continue to block every meaningful bill that is proposed. The economic recovery could be much further along if they hadn’t derailed every improvement bill put forth. Will they show honor, or will they keep attempting to destroy the country. Wait and see.

    Why should the Republicans change a losing strategy? A bunch of them are going to argue that the reason they lost is that they didn’t run a REAL REPUBLICAN instead of a RINO like Mitt, so they aren’t going to be in any mood to compromise. And they will hate Obama even more, because he should have been such an easy target and he makes them all look like stupid losers. So they will try to act as if they had really won the election. It won’t be pretty. I hope Obama and the Democrats generally get some moxie.
