    Fore gone conclusion the mustache would survive.
    Also republicans have lost an excuse to oppose obama I.e he is there like it or not on a democratically elected basis both electoral college and popular vote.
    To messr Mcconnel and Boehner working accross the aisle is not a one way street. the President and votes have re-affirmed what the president has proposed but completely opposed by passing different legislation or filibustering for almost 4 years. time to sit down with the president on his ideas and thrash out a compromise not repeal this repeal that compromise and avoid the fiscal cliff and hello the simple compromise is some tax revenue and yes spending cuts and that includes defense. No more war is a clear consensus. If so, we dont need more defense spending.

    David, We can't thank you enough for mounting the best campaign in Americas history. You'll be in history books as one of the very best to have ever restored Americas younger generation belief that their destiny is in their own hands. We've proven it and a BIG congratulations to your team and America for coming out to vote. Please get this immigration stuff delivered in 2013 so that we can make America stronger once again. To the Clinton's, you are our HEROS and we love you more. May God give you more life and strength for the future battles.
