Running a government like a business is pretty much the worst thing you could do. Other than running it like a household, of course.

I think it needs to be well over 100k jobs per month. More like 200k minimum or we are going backwards. And yet, the big tax increases coming early next year along with Obamacare costs kicking in, going to be a roller coaster for businesses. Would not be surprised to see tons of companies drop healthcare (which was the intention all along) just so survive.

Then the same folks that brought you FEMA, will bring you healthcare. Next 4 years are going to be epic.

saying the job market needs to add significant # of jobs is no where near saying the govt needs to be ran like a biz or a household is goofy.

smart, lean and flexible govt is what i want. not pork projects and glad handing and let's appease the lobbyist first.

I know he isn't a Muslim, but why in the world would he not make a trip to Israel during his first 4 years? He is the only president to never do that... It's like he wanted people to bring this type of stuff up.

Based on Obama's first term, he was much more centrist than expected... and I believe it was because that's where you have to be to get elected.

He now doesn't have to worry about being re-elected... and nobody's gonna vote for Biden in 4 years, so he can do whatever he wants.

I do not believe Obama to be the muslim, socialist, leftist that apparently a large percentage of people believe him to be, but I do believe that he will move noticeably left over the course of this term.

We shall see.



I think he wants to move to the left. But with Republican's controlling the house for the foreseeable future, his ability to move to the left is going to be severly restricted.

The fiscal cliff will set the tone for the next four years I think. Pubs are already trying to draw lines in the sand on tax increases so if Obama caves on that ; he'll do the same the rest of the term.

If by some miracle they all reach a reasonable compromise it should be a good four years.

I think with the election finalized you will see the economy pick up. There are a lot of companies with capital who are holding back during the election. Once we get past the fiscal cliff that money will get put in play and a lot of jobs will get created.
