6. If It Were Me...

If it were me, I would hold a Presidential address in early December and say the following: "The night I was inaugurated back in 2009, the Republicans leadership held a meeting and plotted to obstruct everything I would do even before my administration began to govern. Well Speaker Bohnner and Leader McConnell, the voters have spoken. What's it going to be this time? Are you going to filibuster me 380 times the way you did in my first term? Are you going to continue to let people lose their jobs, homes, and a shot at the American dream for a vain attempt to score political points?

In case you forgot, we were all elected to help the people of the United States of America. You took an oath to uphold the Constitution and not to Grover Norquist. The Bush tax cuts were in effect for 8 years and I even extended them for two more years. We tried it your way and it didn't work. I'm putting you on notice that we are not going to try the same failed policy of the past decade. If you want common ground, I will listen, but your ideas were flatly rejected by a clear major of the electorate. You can help or get out of the wat. The choice is yours.
