I think that Obama will face gridlock with a Republican Congress, particularly in the House of Representatives. I think that a President Romney would have a much better chance of passing a liberal agenda than Obama. I think that's so obvious as to be uncontroversial.
Flawed theory on two points.
1. Obama has already shown he will act without Congress through the use of Czars and Executive Orders. Even so far as taking military action without Congressional approval. (and Congress can't be trusted to have the fortitude to take action against O).
2. Romney will have a reelection to run so there will be some pandering he will have to do to whomever is the loudest and most passionate group. This puts the responsibility in our corner (probably why some don't want to face this this choice). Obama will have no re-election to run so there is no one to pander to but his own ideology. Obama will have no reelection check on his power.
Option 2 gives us a fighting chance IF we take the responsibility and become the "e" ourselves. The so called "e" has no power if they don't get money and votes from us. We have already shown we can influence legislation if we stand up to these so called "e" forces. Case in point, the Kennedy/McCain immigration bill that We The People stopped just by speaking out.
We need to stop complaining about the "e" and start taking control of the "e". I found this graphic a long time ago that sums it up nicely.
Do you think Romney is a marxist bent on income redistribution & moslem sympathizer, too?
