Hats Off...

To GOP Senators Lindsey Graham and Saxby Chambliss for saying that they would be willing to abandon the no tax increase pledge foisted on the Republican party by activist Grover Norquist over the past 20 plus years.  It might mean they get primaried when they’re up for re-election, but it shows that some Republicans are willing to set aside party matters to attempt to do something for the good of the country!  Hopefully this is a good sign that we will get some cooperation in Congress and the Fiscal Cliff will be avoided.

Election Post Mortem

Now that the election is over, President Obama has been re-elected, The Democrats control the Senate, and the Republicans control the House, as before.  Both parties need to check their egos at the door, come together as Americans, and do their jobs, not just for the benefit of their respective parties, but for THE WHOLE COUNTRY!   Compromise is not a dirty word, people!  both sides have good ideas, it is not good to disregard them.  The American voters elected you to get something done,  not 4 more years of gridlock.  There are things that need to get done ASAP, such as fixing the economy and immigration reform.
To the Republican party:
If you want to make inroads with Women,     black, and Latino voters, you need to lay off the insults and vitriol!
