    Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-OH) talks with reporters after the weekly House GOP caucus meeting at the U.S. Capitol December 12, 2012 in Washington, DC.


    Look at him. Is he about to cry because he thinks he will lose his job?

    NBC/WSJ poll: Public wants compromise to avoid fiscal cliff

    And significant majorities believe Obama holds a clear mandate from the election on issues related to this subject:
    •68 percent say he has a mandate on cutting taxes for families earning less than $250,000 per year
    •65 percent say he has a mandate on reducing the deficit by both increasing taxes on the wealthy and reducing federal spending
    •And 59 percent say he has a mandate on eliminating the Bush-era tax cuts for household income over $250,000 a year.

    What’s more, asked to give a word or short phrase to describe the Republican Party, 65 percent offered a negative comment, including more than half of Republicans.

    Some of the responses: “Bad,” “weak,” “negative,” “uncompromising,” “need to work together,” “broken,” “disorganized” and “lost.”

    Romney’s favorable/unfavorable rating in the poll is 35 percent/44 percent (minus-9 points), down from his 43 percent/44 percent score (minus-1) before the election. Much of that drop comes from Republicans and conservatives.

    For the sake of argument, let's say that he is about to cry. So what?

    Since when is crying bad? It's a normal human emotion. it's quite natural to cry. In fact, it's good to cry at times.

    So what exactly do you find so bad about crying?
