arma virumque cano (et alia)
Obama brought compromise to the negotiating table, but the Republicans offered nothing but obstruction in return. Romney understands American politics so well because he's been on every side of every issue we debate. This leaves us with Newt Gingrich more and more likely as the Republican nominee, Ron Paul continuing to snipe from the sidelines, and little of consequence getting done, except for the wealthy.Whose fault is it? American voters. All the money in the world can't force us to vote any particular way. As long as we continue to give these yahoos our attention and our votes, nothing will change.
