Obama bought the Hispanic voted undermining our system by legalizing 2 million hispanics with the stroke of a pen. He won the black vote because, well, he is half black. Sam L. Jackson said it and did it. And you talk of elitist BS, let's talk Obama with his Hollywood buddies. You're funny. tmferretti | November 12, 2012, 3:57 pm —– Wow, you act as if Obama won this 80-20%.

The Congress makes the laws, the President enforces them, or he has the right to veto. Your right, there are some in the middle class who still insist on voting against their and their neighbors best interests. Thankfully the majority were smart enough to see through the elitist BS. If Sam Rayburn, Carl Albert or Tip O'Neil were Speaker these tea party republicans would be brought up on ethics charges for signing a pledge in violation of their oath of office. You can only have one allegiance, either to your country or Grover Norquist. The republicans learned nothing from this election, thats why they will even suffer worse losses in the 2014 Congressional elections. NOZ

You are just afraid that if Boehner makes the Bama Man go first then he'll have to show his hand. There won't be any call to raise the Capital Gains Rate to 30% from Barry.

Remember the vote was about 48% to 50%, not 2% to 98%. If the election was just up to the middle class then Romney would have won. There's a lot of people in the middle class. Obama won by buying the union vote, appealing to the Hispanics who want the illegals here to get citizenship, and connecting with the minorities and the poor. The core of America voted for Romney “They lost this election because they couldn’t relate to the middle class.” – Timbo Ferrari

Boehner, as Speaker, is the guy who’s supposed to bring the House members together so things get done. It's obvious he can't. Forget the failure of the republicans to reach out to Hispanics, Blacks, women, etc. They lost this election because they couldn't relate to the middle class. Did they honestly think that hardworking middle class Americans would vote for a party who thinks that the wealthy (1%) should hold up a tax cut for the middle class (98%)? Mitt didn't lose this election; the republicans lost this election because of their attitude toward the middle class as evidenced on this blog. NOZ

If the Speaker of the House is so weak he needs to call on the President for leadership when it's his constitutional responsibility to make laws, negotiation is silly. Boehner can't control the tea party republicans so he's looking for a way out. He should go to Grover Norquist and get him to release all those republicans from that stupid pledge and do what is right for their country. The President needs to rev up his campaign bus again and take his position to the people. The DNC needs to go into these tea party districts , find a viable democrat and let these tea partiers explain to their constituents why they are holding up the tax extension for the middle class because they think the wealthy aren't doing good enough. The President is making a mistake trying to compromise with the republicans.

You remember? . . . : "Ask not what your country can do for you, but what YOU can do for your country"? Whatever happened to THAT democrat party? The party that still believed in INDIVIDUAL RESPONSIBILITY and some semblance of self discipline. GONE. The democrat party has sold its soul to the radical leftists. Completely sold out to the radical liberal agenda. Now the democrat party is the party of gimme, gimme, gimme. Gimme free contraception (Sandra Fluke), gimme free sex changes (San Fran), gimme free abortions, gimme free breast implants, gimme free cell phones, gimme health care, gimme free food stamps, gimme free unemployment checks . . . gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme. JFK must be turning in his grave. Whatever happened the Democrat Party of JFK ?
