When has Barack Obama ever listened? His ego would never accept an idea from anyone other than his liberal peers. This midwestern bus tour is nothing more than an opportunistic presidential bully pulpit.
The thing that a sitting president has over his potential opponents is his record. Because Obama's record is pathetic, he needs to lie and decieve his way out of the mess his liberal, socialistic policies have placed us in. What Obama is trying to do is the only thing he can do: shift blame onto the evil Republicans.
When Obama talks of broken politics, that is code for: "if it weren't for Republicans, I could have MY OWN WAY".
For the most part, I like gridlock. The more gridlock, the less laws get passed. In the recent debt ceiling debate, I would have been perfectly fine with no action.
Modern American politicians, from either party, can only do one thing: create more laws, more programs, and more costs -- more government. The party difference is scope.
These next 15 months will be pure hell for America. We will have to listen to politician after politician make promises that either cannot or should not be kept. The American political process has become the age of populism. It is bad for Latin American and it is bad for the USA.
