    Now even the Aussies are making excuses for him.

    And that’s how we in the Rest Of The World see the American Situation.
    Most of us (80% worldwide by some estimates) rather like your President, as many as would rather like to like the rest of you, and would love to see him soar.

    Pity you can’t find the necessary kryptonite. But I’m willing to bet any amount of money that, while the Congress elected in ‘10 failed to stop President Obama’s re-election in ‘12, they’ll be successful in ‘16. I’m going way out on a limb and predicting that Obama will NOT be re-elected in ’16, and we will be able to thank the Republican House for that.

    (Also, the Republican Senate elected in ’46.)

    First Obama cannot be re-elected in 2016, he will have served two terms. As for the Republican House stopping him,, they will have more internal problems than they can deal with. Finally, who is going to want to be a Republican President? Romney? McCain? some other old duffer who is totally out of touch with the Middle Class?
    I do not see a Republican President in the future, just a lot of Republican funerals.

    “I do not see a Republican President in the future…”
    Don’t count your chickens before they hatch, a lot can change in 4 years. Remember how much changed inbetween Obama’s election and the 2010 midterms? And that was only 2 years. Your statement indicates that you’re willing to believe what you want the future to be, rather than putting effort into making an accurate assesment of the situation. This is the same attitude that left Republicans stunned during this election cycle.

    Congress was kryptonite for Obama last term. Rather than being one of the “Justice League” working WITH ‘Superman’, too many in Congress have worked against what used to be called in the intro to the old black and white Superman show- Truth, Justice, and the American way.
    The lines are certainly well drawn in this cartoon comment line.

    Umm more like even the Aussies can see what the “say no” republicans thought would have won them the White House. But hey you just keep making excuses for those do nothings…

    Would you right wingers please find a new song to sing other than “we blame it on the main stream media”. It’s tired, old and rediculous and every time you say it any sane American rolls their eyes and wonders when you all will remove your tin foil hats….

    @Ms. Ima

    As I said, please take off your tin foli hat. Your insanity is far to abvious to the rest of sane America…

    @Ms. Ima

    Would you like to compare Bush’s vacation time to our current Presidents? No no you would not because that would deflate you ignorantt point. Oh well I will do it anyway just to show Ima is a tool: Calls to several Presidential libraries reveal that President Obama’s predecessor, George W. Bush, was on vacation more — 1,020 days — than any U.S. President since Herbert Hoover and possibly more than any other President in history.

    Now what were you saying Ima?

    If the Democrats in Congress and President Obama have any compromise to be made at all would day that they need to raise the tax limit for those to continue to the increase on the expired temporary tax decreases of GW Bush from $200,000 per singles and $250,000 per family income to $1,000,000 each. Even the lower figure would NOT include 90% or more of the small business people of American (and none of the working middle class at all).

    I can not imagine that even the Republicans (well, perhaps excepting the already brain dead Tea Party types) could ever even the state that such limits would be hurting the true job creating small business people of this country. I mean all we are talking about a 4% increase in taxes here, perhaps even most American millionaires would be willing to make that much of a sacrifice towards the good of the country that enables them to make their millions!

    Then, with reasonable and doable cuts in both the military and those programs that can be cut in the federal budget, we would be able to reduce the federal deficit blow $1 trillion even next year, and further and further as we go along towards 2016 and beyond. This would happen even with a slow but steady pick up of the American economy.

    And if they can not even make this small amount of compromise , then they can watch the American economy truly tank. And regardless of just what such as Ima, and her other ultra conservative friends here want to think the American people are NOT going to blame President Obama for this. They will be blaming the Congress itself (and the Republicans and their Tea Party “friends” especially. Then come 2014, the Republicans will simply become a footnote in American future history. SO, if I were an ultra conservative, I would want my Congress person to be one of those willing to make such a compromise, not only for the United States, but fo rthe sake of the political party that I believed in!

    Well, I am neither an ultra conservative, nor an ultra liberal, but I would want the Republicans to especially show a willingness to compromise here, as I would actually not want to just hand the government over totally to the Democrats either. But if they (the Republicans) do not compromise at all, then that is exactly what is going to happen. And those idiots in states that threaten to leave the union are not going anywhere either!!

    @Robert Landers

    Sorry, some of my sentences in the previous post are not as good and complete as I would wish, but I hope the posters here can still understand what i meant anyway. This is NOT an easy and short subject!
