A Successful Second Term for President Obama?

So someone informed me that President Obama won a second term. I read it on the Internet so it must be true.

The question now is what is the key to a successful second term? In the president's first term he promised bi-partisanship and a new tone in Washington.

The result? A big fat zero. He promised transparency. What happened? Nada. No public hearings on healthcare like he promised. And now comes the big fiscal cliff negotiations. The president has the upper hand and could try and cash that in to forward his liberal agenda.

All bets are that he will do exactly that. But if he wants to cement a positive legacy, then he'd be wise to give more than he gets. Be the compromiser in chief with the GOP, not the bully in chief or the dictator in chief.

Settling for less liberalism in the fiscal cliff grand bargain would end up doing him and the country a world of good. But don’t count on it.

# RE: A Successful Second Term for President Obama?


Come on now... President Obama already has his legacy ... it was placed in the history books forever when he was elected to his second term. Not one of the kids covered til age 27 by Obamacare cares that repukelicans hate it, not one of the millions of Americans with pre-existing conditions cares that repukelicans hate it. Face it - President Obama is going down as the only President able and willing to give ALL Americans healthcare. All the birthers and ignorant hate filled Americans lost and President Obama WON!!! The hate fear and greed pushed by the repukelican party proved once and for all that the angry old white men and woman can no longer dictate their will on the majority of Americans. God has proven once again that America is great because of the diveristy that has been allowed to grow and strengthen this great nation. Please be advised... no one believes that the President is a dictator. Please note - everyone hears the hate fear and greed pushed by repukelicans!!

Unless there is compromise we will go off the cliff. We will have to pray more for our country. Gay marriage and pot smoking will become the law of the land. God helps us. Can Gods judgment be far off. They didn't learn nothing by the superstorm hitting New York and New Jersey. Do you that this storm was an accident? Gods hand of protection has been lifted from our country because of all this sin.
