    I wonder if anyone has informed Obama that Global warming is not caused by humans, and that the Earth has seen virtually no warming since 1995.

    and it's called compromise.
    Compromise is actually a good idea in the kind of partisan atmosphere you have in Washington. Neither side has all the answers so reaching common ground is probably the way to go right now. Especially when it comes to economic policies.

    Politicians should start working together to solve problems instead of fighting and bickering all the time.

    Did you now that Russia is now drilling in the Gulf of Mexico?

    I wonder if this decision is in reponse to that.

    Either that or it's the classic "middle ground" approach that Pres. Obama always seems to make. This is the biggest issue I have with him is that it seems as if he doesn't have any values on anything.

    Obama has ALWAYS been middle ground. That is what us Liberals have always had issue with him. But we knew that coming into the election.
    Despite the right-wings efforts to try to paint him as a "liberal", the reality is, Obama has always been a left-leaning moderate. His entire record is moderate. This issue, while I disagree with Obama on it, was part of his campaign...so anyone who is surprised by this or trying to convey ulterior motives is just not paying attention.

    Have you seen his voting record? Did you see what was just passed in that health care bill? Yikes. Id say Obama's a bit more of a leftist than you're willing to admit. Just a wee-bit.

    Look, this works for me. I won't vote for Obama, but as to compromising a little bit, it was good enough for Ronald Reagan, and look what it accomplished for us when he was president. A little reaching across the aisle never hurt either party.
