    Would you drive the country into another recession...

    ...if you were certain that it would mean that Obama would be a one term president?

    Was curious since some GOP politicians seem to think keeping Obama from being elected again is their top political priority.

    It would depend on the situation.

    If it were for political posturing or the removal of rivals, absolutely not.

    If I felt that what I was doing would greatly benefit the country and its citizens long term, then yes I would sacrifice the short term to better the future.

    I may disagree completely with what you said, but I admire your honesty for saying it.

    No, definitely not. But I don't have the pathological hatred for Obama that some people seem to have.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

    Hell,some of the younger members of the GOP would probably risk plunging the entire planet into a recession and possible economic warfare with China just to get rid of Obama.
    Some of them seem to be that pathological.

    At some point, some of our conservative posters are going to come in here and rip apart your premise. They will be right. Your basic assumption is just that, and assumes the worst of people.

    Actually,since he used the words "since some GOP politicians seem to think " that makes it an "opinion",not an "assumption" or a "premise".
    Or a "fact".

    CriticalThought has a right to his "opinion".
    And while the conservatives may not like his "opinion" it is up to them to prove that his "opinion" is wrong.

    No, that is still making an assumption as to the motives as those people, with no real evidence.
