      I agree but I guess this is what voters wanted. I think we're on a downward spiral to bankruptcy and it's too late to stop it. Congress should just give Obama all the spending he wants and just sit back and watch the bad movie.

        It amazing how the libs think "everything is fine now". Give it about a month. Nothing has really changed. Boener won't move, Obama won't move, and both of their parties will follow them blindly. At least we had a chance if ROmney were elected. Now? Just more of the same... Not good.

        IT IS EVEN MORE AMAZING THAT YOU WOULD THINK 'LIBS' WOULD THINK THAT WHEN EVERYONE KEEPS TALKING ABOUT THE FISCAL CLIFF! IT IS OK TO BE SKEPTICAL BUT TO ASSUME THAT IT WILL BE POLITICS AS USUAL IS AN EXTREME UNDERESTIMATION OF THE PEOPLE'S WILL. IF WE GO INTO A RECESSION DO TO THEIR INABILITY TO COMPROMISE, HEADS WILL ROLL AND THE REPUBLICANS IN THE HOUSE AND SENATE ARE THE MOST VULNERABLE.

        "HEADS WILL ROLL" – that is the problem. Heads didn't roll. Everything stayed the same. If Americans were serious about fixing the debt and economy they elected the wrong person.

      • DEcember 2012

        UHH, NO. THE REPUBLICANS ALSO TOOK A BEATING IN THE SENATE AND SOME LOSSES IN THE HOUSE. IF YOU LOOK AT THE TOTAL NUMBER OF VOTES, THE DEMOCRATS WON IN ALL OF THEM. SURE IT LOOKS THE SAME BUT IT IS NOT AND IT WILL BECOME VERY OBVIOUS IN THE COMING DAYS.

        The repubs have the House, the Dems have the Senate and the Presidency. Obama actually got less votes than mcCain did during the last election. What has changed? bad economy, battle of taxes, no jobs,. But, I guess you are right, thisngs changed. Businesses are beginning to announce layoffs because of Obamacare.

        November 9, 2012 at 5:12 pm |
      • DEcember 2012

        THERE WILL ALWAYS BUSINESSES THAT WILL FAIL TO ADJUST TO NEW REALITIES. IN A FREE MARKET ECONOMY THE STRONG SURVIVE AND COMPANIES CAN MAKE MONEY DESPITE GOVERNMENT. I FIND IT IRONIC THAT OBAMACARE IS BEING LOOKED AT AS A HINDRANCE RATHER THAN A OPPORTUNITY. THAT REEKS OF COWARDICE AND I AM NOT THE LEAST BIT SURPRISED WHEN BUSINESSES GET CODDLED BY GOVERNMENT WITH SUBSIDIES, TAX BREAKS AND BAILOUTS. USING OBAMACARE AS AN EXCUSE FOR LAYOFFS IS A NEW LOW AND WE SHALL SEE JUST HOW THE MARKET WILL REACT. BOTTOM LINE, IT HAPPENED BEFORE AND MASSACHUSETTS DID NOT DRIVE AWAY COMPANIES AND INVESTMENTS.

        November 9, 2012 at 5:36 pm |
      • John

        Under this administration the businesses that survive are the ones Obama picks.

        November 12, 2012 at 10:39 am |
      • DEcember 2012

        T'S FUNNY REALLY. BUSINESSES OFTEN DIE BECAUSE OF THEIR OWN STUPID DECISIONS, BUT SURE WHY NOT? BLAME EVERYTHING ON OBAMA. WHATEVER MAKES YOU FEEL GOOD INSIDE. NEVER MIND THAT IT DOESN'T FIT ANY KIND OF REALITY. DID YOU FORGET SOLYNDRA? 'PICKED' BY OBAMA AND YET IT FAILED. SO WHAT NOW?

        ISN'T IT TIME THESE BUSINESSES TAKE SOME ACCOUNTABILITY? I GUESS THAT DIED IN THE 90's.

        Tune into Greece, riots, crime up 350%, country totally bankrupt....why? They ran out of entitlement money and now the natives are restless. Give us 10 years, we will be right with them.

      It's a cameo. It probably took like an hour. How about you focus more on the $6 billion wasted during the election by both sides campaigning, and the months and months of time spent. If you want to complain about wasted government time it's what we give for campaigning.

      Besides, besides breathing and breaking ties in the Senate, what is the job of the VP? It's not like Congress is even in session most of the time with all the recesses and vacations they have.

      He did a cameo on a popular TV show that is a satire of local government. Get over it.

      I used to think that, too, when George Bush's face kept showing up on the the cover of MAD MAGAZINE.
      Seriously, get a life. We are tired of Republican doom and gloom.

      “A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship. The average age of the world’s greatest civilizations has been 200 years.”

      The only one who had to take weeks filming was John McCain, who had to take frequent naps.

    Re: Vacancy in the Secretary Of State..Mr. President considering that former Sen Hillary Clinton is leaving her post as Sec of State in Jan of 2013.. I believe the most qualified person to be appointed to that position is Gen. Collin Powell.. He endorsed you twice but the most influential endorsement was for your 2nd term.Gen.Collin Powell has a vast experience in foreign affairs and the military.

    November 8, 2012 at 1:02 pm |
    • Steveo

      I am not is sure if he would do it. That is a post he already had. It would probably be good for the country if he did take it though. iwil say this. To offer it because of an endoorsement is insane and playing games. To offer it becuase he is thought to be the right individual is sane!

      November 9, 2012 at 8:53 am |
      • Cynthia L.

        I agree with you on this one, Steveo. Wish the Republican party still had more of the likes of Gen. Powell. He could've been our first black President if his own party hadn't stuck a stake in his back. He would be a good choice for Sec. of State but don't think he would come out of retirement for it. Besides, if he did accept an offer from Obama to do it, he would receive another round of hate from Republilcans, as they see working with any Democrat in office as an affront to their obstructionism.

        November 9, 2012 at 9:52 am |
      • Steveo

        Cynthia l,

        I don't begrudge his endorsement. The 1st amendment applied to Gen Powell too! As far as obstruction, I said loooong time ago, McConnell waa wrong. We wiill see if he pays for that the next time he is up for re-election.. My main point is this: The left obstructs just as hard as the right. Both sides obstruct and nobody admits their side does!

        This Republican Congress has set a record of 380 filibusters. Don't you think that's a bit extreme? I do.

      Icing on the cake that would be the greatest, Powell left because Cheney was a total dick, war, war , war don't they get it soilders hate war, so at the end of the day they are the best diplomats..............

    If Romney had won we would really be doomed...he would have spent the four years trying to decide where he said he stood on each issue.

      If you had a hint of a clue about the man instead of regurgitating talking points from main-scream media, you would realize that he was this country's only shot to prevent the abyss we are about to enter.

    We have the same thing we have had for the last four years. Could someone please tell me how the hell things are going to be better. Is it just bad luck the stock market took a nose dive the day after the election , I don`t think so. We are in serious trouble and it`s coming from two directions the left and the right. STOP THE BLAME GAME AND DO YOUR DAMN JOBS.

    Is Vice President Biden playing the part of Smokey the Bear? If you put a ranger hat on his head and a shovel in his hand, he would be the spitting image. Of course, someone will have to monitor him closely to keep him talking about preventing forest fires.

    We may as well raise the debt ceiling to $50trillion and rubber stamp all the utopian spending plans and get it over with. Sometimes it's better to burn the house down and start over. Only 13% of voters said they cared about the debt so we can see where this is going to go.

      YOU CAN GO AHEAD AND SET AN EXAMPLE BY BURNING YOUR OWN HOUSE DOWN. I'M SURE IT WILL BE AS EQUALLY CONSTRUCTIVE AS ANYTHING YOU HAVE SAID SO FAR.

        MORE THAN ANYONE ELSE, I WOULD LIKE TO RETIRE THE TERM 'REPUBLITARD' FROM THESE COMMENTS BUT YOU ARE MAKING THAT CHOICE VERY DIFFICULT. MAYBE IT IS IMPOSSIBLE? I SURE HOPE NOT.

    Blessed are the peacemakers.......
    Look, the election is ove. The president won reelection and Romney had his hat handed to him. I voted from Romney. It did not work out. Tuesday night after the race was called I prayed for te presient before i went to bed. First thing Wednesday morning when I got up, I prayed for the president. He is the president twice elected. that is fact. What is also fact, is somehow we have to move on. I talked trash just like we all did during the heat of the election battle. It is over. We have to move on. I hope thngs change! I hope the promises to work together will be kept. I have some doubts, but that is my hope. If leadership fails, we all fail! We are still talking trash! Move on, if you pray, pray for our leadership! ALL of us are in this together! The Bible says " A house divided cannot stand." That is us a divided house. The election is over, disappointed or not, we are stil Americans! Time to act like it. We still have the right to hold foks accountable, that had not changed! There is still a balance of power! You don't like what you see? Do something about it in two years!. Until then, let's be better than this

      Actually Steveo, I didn't get the impression that you talked trash.

      Steveo it doesn't matter much what you or I say, it's what the leadership does. The ball is in Obama's court now, it's up to him.

      November 9, 2012 at 4:03 pm |
      • Steveo

        My point Frank is whether one is gloating or being bitter, that cannot happen for the next four years! This is a country that needs to be healed and come together. Now you are correct, the ball is in the president's court. He made more promises to work with the GOP to work for the country! The GOP is going to have to go to work too! Something is going to have to change! Still a whole lot of nasty on these blogs. Yeah, folks have the right but I will exercise my right to be better than that.

      • jean2009

        Really? The president was rightfully and honestly elected both times. That is an honest fact that regardless of how you feel hasn't changed. Since then we have had four years of a petulant Boehner allowing all his right-wing cohorts to continue balking, and in full denial that a black man could be elected president. Actually the ball is where it has been for the last 4 years in Boehner's court...so now it is time for Boehner to quit stalling...he can no longer make this president a one-term president. He now needs to do the right thing for all the American people not just the 2%..

    The President nor Vice-President should spend time on the Vue, SNL, Parks and Recreation and/or anything shows like that. It is a disgrace. With the shape this country is in, they should spend every non-eating, non-sleeping hour working on the problems that are about to blow up the USA. For goodness sake, please let's try to keep something dignified about the this country's leadership considering with the past election we have turned this country into enough of a mockery.

      DID YOU EVEN THINK ABOUT THIS BEFORE ASKING THE QUESTION? WOULD YOU RATHER HE SUBJECT HIMSELF TO A SIMILAR IMPEACHMENT PROCEEDING LIKE CLINTON DID? PETRAEUS HAS MY RESPECT FOR NOT DRAGGING THE AGENCY AND THE COUNTRY INTO THAT KIND OF NEEDLESS MESS.

      Patraeus has dignity, honor and enough class to take resposibility for his actions. Clinton and democrats posess none of these traits. Remember....."it depends on what your definition of is, is"?

    General Petraeus has my respect for manning up and doing the right thing. That being said, I wish he had thought first and learned from the past that when you are in a position of power all eyes will be on you. On a more humorous note...maybe we need to require chastity belts for all these guys.

    TO ALL OF YOU THAT ARE SO DISMISSIVE OF THE REASONS THAT ROMNEY LOST PLEASE READ THE COMMENTS OF HIS FELLOW GOP. ALSO HIS OWN COMMENTARY THIS WEEK. HE HAS SHOWN EXACTLY WHY HE SHOULD NOT HAVE WON. HE IS THE 1ST CANDIDATE IN MY MEMORY TO MAKE SPEECHES FULL OF SOUR GRAPES AND BIGOTED COMMENTS.. HE REALLY DID MEAN ALL THE THINGS HE GOT CAUGHT SAYING BEHIND CLOSED DOORS. HE DID EVERYTHING HE COULD THINK OF TO BUY THE PRESIDENCY, BUT THE PEOPLE RECOGNIZED HIM FOR WHAT HE WAS.
