Unfortunately, they won't. The people who voted for Obama think he's done a bang-up job. Republicans who voted for Romney mainly understood that he was the less bad of two less-than-stellar choices. Democrats who voted for Obama think Obama is the greatest thing since sliced bread. He taxes the rich, he hands out free healthcare and phones, he "cares" about the environment, ... did I mention he taxes the rich?
There will be a lame duck session between Election Day 2012 and January 2013, when President Obama has his second inauguration and the next Congress takes office. And in that time, incredibly important policy must be decided.

We will see an enormous decision that must be made on the Bush income taxes and the payroll tax holiday, but what might provide more problems between the parties are the sequester spending cuts. Democrats do not want to admit that they have pushed sharp defense decreases upon the country as a "compromise" for raising the debt ceiling last time. It's surprising that...
