    Apparently, Obama’s Marxist philosophies trumped American founder’s concepts of liberty and free enterprise. Who’d a thunk there were so many “American” Marxists that after 4 years of bad economy, they’d want 4 more years?

    Less than four million Americans allowed the President to be in the office another four years. I doubt Marx had any influence on their vote. Free enterprise failed to keep the Middle Class working. The government had to bail out Wall Street. Government now has to bail out Main Street (Middle Class). What Free enterprise has to do now is bring back the jobs they sent overseas. Marx and our American founders have been death for some time. We should focus on the working class, balanced budget,education, and a strong Military. You did not really think that “trickle down economics” was going to resurface. The nation needs a strong middle class not a 1% ruling class. The Super Pacs will always loose to the will of the people. I therefore, thank those four million Americans who voted to stay on the same horse just as we were in the middle of the stream.

    As usual a break with reality. You had a government for eight years that ran the country into the ground, then you expect the new regime to fix it in less than four years. You all have been bitching since he got elected. The republican controlled congress has blocked every effort which is what McConnell said they were going to do, make sure president Obama was a one term president. Well they failed at that too!
    In two years we will vote out the tea party obstructionists and vote in individuals who care about all the people of this country not just some.
