The problem for the People is this: The Republican and Democrat politicians don't care at all about the people -- only reelection. That's it. They want the same thing: more government power over the people -- which only increases their own power. The Democrats say "Tax the rich. Give poor people money. Give advantages to minorities, etc. etc." because that's what Democrat voters want to hear. The Republicans say, "Cut spending. Everyone needs to earn his own money. No one should have an advantage bestowed by the government." because that's what the Republican voters. In truth, they ALL want more taxes, more spending, more power. We got much higher taxes right away -- and spending cuts -- sometime -- maybe.

President Obama won the first round of his second term, but thanks to Mitch McConnell the beating wasn’t as severe as it could have been.

The period between the election and the turn of the calendar was dominated by the president, with Speaker John Boehner as his foil. The Speaker always seemed to assume the president was negotiating in good faith, even as the campaign events continued, and even as he was pummeled day and night by the president and his surrogates in the MSM.

The collapse of the Speaker's and the GOP’s ability to make an argument was complete...
