  1. I agree, Obama should start negotiating and working with the republicans, and stop acting like the stubborn liberal he is. For him to have the nerve to say “I will not negotiate with a gun to my head” , it was his ignoring the will of the people that got us into this.

  2. Obama is an egomaniac: review his behavior since his first nomination. He cannot accept the idea of being denied what he wants. He was conned by George Soros and company, who saw him as the manipuable child he is and set him up as a Hollywood star-type. Do you remember the Greek amphitheater staging of the first campaign?
    How naive are the mass of Americans!
