    Obama is a great president. Poor Karl Rove owes hundreds of millions of dollars to gangsters, poor Karl Rove.

    The president is moving us forward in the right direction and the republicans are afraid of that. The American people have spoken and we spoke loud and clear last Tuesday. We are sick and tired of being dragged down the road and thrown off the cliff just to "get even" with the president. We want people who will work with the president and compromise or we'll kick them out. As for CEOs, they have no choice but to work with the president (the campaign is over) and they better come to grips with that real soon.

    I clearly remember Obama campaigning to his voters that he is providing all of those mentioned gifts/entitlements as long as he was in fact re-elected which prevents us from calling Romney a liar. Are we now at the point of stating that those promises of entitlements (gifts) do not persuade the voters for if this is the case then everyone will need to stop trying to enforce a cap on lobbyists' gifts/donations for there is no difference between the two.

    The only stumbling block(s), will be the party that believes it's right, regardless of how many times it's proven wrong.

    ...proving that Romney really meant the 47% remark. That's why the majority of Americans rejected him last week. Thank goodness for President Obama's honesty and integrity and his true commitment to the middle class. Never has it been more clear that the American people made the right choice in a President.

    Unfortunately Obama has to deal with a Republican House that has done everything they can to stymie and stal an economic recovery so they could get control of the government. Now that the election has shown fairly conclusivly that Obama's approach is the one that the country wants the House may become a bit more cooperative.
    But, then again, they are Republicans. More than likely they will block anything that helps America, while loudly proclaiming it is all the Liberals fault. And then they will run in the next election claiming that if we give rich people money by the bucketfull, said rich people will run through middle class and poor neighborhoods throwing money in all directions to save the bottom 80% of Americans. After all they are rich and who else can you possibly trust???

    Hmmm... Gifts he says? Let's talk about Romney Claus:

    A tax cut to the wealthiest folks in the country...
    A gift to the insurance industry by killing the affordable healthcare act....
    Christmas for big oil...
    "Happy Days are Here Again," for corporations wanting tax breaks even though they outsource jobs over seas...
    Pork galore for defense industries spending money the Pentagon didn't ask for...
    And a nice big lump of coal to his favorite people...the lazy, shiftless 47%!
