My husband & I own our own "SMALL" business! WE could use one of those "gifts" too!

AND...I DON'T MEAN A FREE "PAPA JOHN'S PIZZA", either! LOL emoticon

Hey, I'm an Irish Catholic. I'm sure that makes me a minority in this country. Hey, Prez! Where's my "gift?"

The whole "gifts" thing is completely ridiculous.

I'm sure his accountants were working on that during the campaign....but I want my "gifts"...I think I will start a petition to demand that Pres.Obama deliver all these gifts that I keep hearing about...

The Republicans give "gifts" to the wealthy and to corporations all the time. The fact that Romney only pays 13% (or less) in income tax is a gift to him. Speaking of his taxes - how long do you think it will be before Romney amends his 2011 tax return to take the rest of his charitable deductions?

Boehner panders..so who knows if he'll remeber that he's supposed to serve the people, not the party.

With all the posturing around working together, it will be interesting to see what happens when they actually have to compromise. Speaker Boehner may want to seem moderate, but it is unlikely that his tea party people will go along with that.

Me too...isn't he still paying off all that campaign debt from this last failed attempt? But I think anyone in the GOP with big "dreams" are denouncing Mittens statement...they have to be viewed as a "unifier" and a voice of reason within the party...good luck with that....

It sounds like he is trying to position himself to run for the presidency yet again.

JET, that's only because he is less than intelligent..he can't help that part. Nor do i trust this sudden switch to reasonable thought..the GOP is simply reviewing their stupidity behind the scenes and working to repair their tarnished image. They know nobody wanted to buy what they were selling, so they're beginning to retool for next time..
