    The people returned to the house a safe majority of Republicans. In other words a majority of Americans agree with the House on its policies and bills. Or at least the left would have us believe that because Obama was reelected his policies and bill proposals were approved by the majority.

    GOP makes new 'fiscal cliff' offer to Obama - First Read

    Unless Obama and the dems get serious about cuts, real cuts not pretend ones 10 years from now, they will get very little from the House.

    Obama promised to compromise, yet to date he has done no such thing. Making outrageous demands, trying to claim his election somehow allows him to gain powers no President has EVER had. The people will grow tired of his stonewalling long before the 2014 elections. Te press can't cover for him all the time.

    This is not true. President Obama (and other democrats) had millions of more votes than the republicans this past election. The notion that republicans still hold the house is because not enough viable seats where up for grabs. However, president Obama did win again, the democrats gained seats in the senate AND house, and the democrats won big. So taxes are going up, Medicare and social security will not be touched because in the end, poll after poll shows Obama's plan is the favorite of the country and will blame the republicans if we go over the fiscal cliff wether you or any other republicans like it or not.

    Wrong as usual for a lefty. It is 2 years to another election, Obama won't change his spots and will be undone in 2 years as he attempts to brow beat his opinion over those duly elected to pass legislation.

    The House has proposed 1.4 trillion in new revenue just like the President did. And they did it without raising taxes. At no point has Obama proposed any cuts. Ohh they talk about cuts in 10 YEARS. Which is no cut since it would require a new bill be passed in 10 years to actually do it. No cuts after promising the American people he would use a balanced approach. He got elected on the claim he would use a BALANCED approach. Nothing he has offered or proposed has been balanced yet. Even with the press soft balling that he is going to get owned on it.

    .

    So the Republicans stumble their way through the campaign and are able to hold the House. The Democrats keep the Senate and the White House, much to the shock of the Republicans, who had convinced themselves that they were gonna clean up.

    And Obama has to bend over for the GOP.

    Check. Got it.

    Obama ran on a claim he would seek a BALANCED approach to the deficit and the budget. Please explain what that means?

    That is not true, and reveals your political ignorance. Democrats got more votes in the House of Representatives this year, but Republicans maintain their majority because after the 2010 election they rammed through redistricting, reshaping their districts to ensure electoral victory.

    It means he was bullshitting and the voters still voted for him with unemployment at 8%.

    The alternative was lousy, from top to bottom.

    Not much to brag about there.

    Why? You're a dumb ass wingnut who was already shown in this thread that you don't have a clue what happened in the election. So you will still not have a clue after I explain to you how Obama has already lowered the deficit.

    You made the same mistake in 2010, incorrectly presuming the midterms were a ‘portent’ of 2012.

    Talk about someone who has no freaking idea what happened in the election. Those mean ole republicans in the state houses that were voted in by those mean ole republican voters some how did something the voters didn't want and deprived the commies house seats. REALLY? You haven't figured out that the majority of state houses are controlled by republicans because that's what the people voted for at the local level. So take your cry baby ass tale some where else, only other commies will buy it. The American people voted for divided government, get over it.
