Do you think that Obama could achieve his goals better if he were more conciliatory with the GOP and his own party's Congressional leaders?

NOT exactly the way the next two years is starting out!

It doesn't mean he has to "cave," just be more open?

    I think he could achieve more, Like Reagan with Tip O'Neil and Clinton with Newt Gingrich, a lot of good things can come out of divided government. Now with that said, the question is "Will" he change, that has yet to be seen and by his opening salvo at the Press Conference, I don't see him pivoting on much of anything. I hope he does, but suspect he won't.

    The last 6 years have proven that the Republicans, who actually ran on no compromise" and stopping Obama's agenda, never had any intention of working with Obama before. I don't really see that changing now.

    Obama doesn't play well with others. He doesn't know how to be a president. He just dictates the Americans. He was a complete waste of our time and money.VOTE REPUBLICAN!

    He is the lamest of lame ducks. The only way anything will get done is if he caves. Like Bill Clinton did. Or use his executive powers, which will start a firestorm with congress.

    He tried that in his first term and the gop only moved their demands farther to the right. That is why he is using EOs.

    NO, he is too arrogant and would rather see the country destroyed than to compromise.

    That would entail him admitted he made mistakes, which will happen when Hell freezes over..
