MR. PRESIDENT, WE ARE NOT MAKING ENOUGH PROGRESS TRAINING THE AFGHANI SOLDIERS. SOME SAY THEY WILL NOT BE READY IN 2014. WE CANNOT AFFORD THIS WAR. OUR ECONOMY IS ON A PRECIPICE. LET’S LEAVE HONORABLY.

DO YOU KNOW THE COST OF THE WAR? http://costofwar.com/

Well, President Obama says the Great Compromise of 2010[sic] is for the greater good. Perhaps he is right. As our leader, it was his decision to make. It falls to us now to focus on the good in this decision: significant money for the unemployed, payroll tax cuts, etc. It might have been great to fight instead of compromise, but, there is merit in genuinely caring for people who have no jobs to pay for a Christmas for their children and family. Now there can be a Christmas goose instead of “Spam.” Now Santa can pay a visit to many more homes in the land. Yes, let us CELEBRATE the good in our contract with the….the republicans. Let us hope that Sen. McConnell spoke truth when he said that there can be a working relationship with the Administration. But, Senator, compromise does not mean giving in to your party. You won this battle, but, the war rages on! As he announced the framework of the Great Compromise of 2010, Obama looked confident and unbowed, a leader, our leader. God bless him and God bless America!
