It's a cynical statement to make, but the only reason any non-partisan
voter has for voting for Mitt Romney is the fact that the Republican Party has
so disrupted and worked to make the Obama administration ineffectual that
nothing will get done if Obama wins the election and the Republicans either keep
control of the House or a supermajority is not achieved by Democrats in the
Senate.The strategy of Republicans to, not only not cooperate but to
actively work to make Obama fail, has been a disappointment to many. Perhaps
this is their objective when they don't hold the reins of power. If there
is not a Republican president residing in the White House, then nothing will get
done. Republicans even appear to extend the president's ineffectiveness by
doing whatever can be done to make the lives of the American people worse off.
In this way they hope American voters will just give in and give Republicans the
White House, and hopefully both the Senate and the House of Representatives.
It is really sad to give up in this way, but Republicans have
enjoyed success by making things as painful as they can.
Salsa Libre,Have you considered that Republicans want Obama to fail
because they want America to succeed? Democrats have said that they don't
want to return to the policies that put us in this mess in the first place, and
Republicans and voters are in complete agreement! That's why they took
control of the House away from Democrats and Miss "We need to pass it so we
can find out what's in it".
