Please conservatives, can you stop just harping about everything now, but maybe make an attempt towards compromise? MAYBE? Obama is not as liberal as we would like, and I give you this as a warning, not a threat. If you continue to rebuke his efforts towards approaching the center, if you continue the partisan attacks on everything you dislike regardless of fact, you WILL push him into our arms. I would love this, but in order to get stuff done, running to the extremes won't help. You have a chance to turn back now, from the abyss of far right, no compromise hard line policies, but I warn you, that will not be good for your agenda. Do not test the liberal wing of the democratic party any more than you have.

Nah. I like gridlock.

That said, I'd LOVE for you guys to really stick it to rich people. I mean REALLY stick it to them.
I'd love to see Bill Gates and Warren Buffet in Section 8 housing.

Yes stick it to those in the private sector that could provide jobs! That's a winning formula for success. At least this will dampen the chances for Hillary in 2016, if the Repubs can accept that the will of the country is freedom of choice in social issues.

This election wasn't about social issues. America is now a land of teat-suckers.

You must be kidding? Pres Obama has done nothing approaching the center, he would have been far more successful if he had..The liberal wing will have no more success now than they have in the last 4 years, thank God for a republican House.

He didn't have to move to the center. the country moved left!

President Barack Obama won re-election tonight without winning as many electoral votes as he did the last time around after facing a serious threat because of his first term agenda. Now beware of people in the mainstream media proclaiming that there's some kind of "mandate" for Barack Obama to run with.

As Ron Fournier points out at the National Journal, President Obama completely sold out the hopes, dreams and...
