    Romney's debate victory was marked by a tack back to the Center. He will be moderate enough to infuriate me.

    Obama's offerings have been unsatisfactory, from what i understand, to the Conservative leaders...unacceptably so.

    See, the thing is that whenever the cry goes up for greater bi-partisanship in Washington the expectation is ALWAYS that the Conservatives will make concessions, not the Liberals.

    The onus should be on both sides, but let's have Democrats make some concessions for a change!

    I voted 'other'. I will believe it when I see it. Let's see how congress shapes up, then we'll talk.

    I'm more liberal than conservative. I think Romney would be more bi-partisan.

    This is, simply put, because he's already demonstrated his ability to flip-flop based on audience; In the primaries, he was much further to the right than he is now.

    You HOPE he will be moderate enough to infuriate me. Only Mitt knows what Mitt believes.

    Voting For Romney in 2012 is like voting for Obama in 2008. It's all Hope.

    Nah. If I was voting for him instead of against the other guy, that might hold water.

    hmmmm, I answered other

    Obama has tried a lot to be partisan, even to the point of upsetting his own supporters.
    Mitt in his past has done the same.

    I think id easily give the lead to Obama BUT that doesnt mean Mitt wouldnt do it. I actually think they would BOTH be good at it, Obama just better because of certain issues. But the reality is I think Mitt would have more success doing it because at this point in time the Dems are more willing to do so then the Reps. So the issues is Mitt working with Dems and them accepting it VS Obama working with Reps and them accepting it.


    What Im getting at is the real question, which party is currently more willing to be Bi-Partisan with a president with a different letter after thier name and currently I feel thats the Dems.

    Frankly, I think Obama has been a pushover his first term. He gave up WAY too much ground to the Republicans. But then the Republicans weren't even the least bit secretive about their main priority being Obama's failure. That said, I don't think the Republicans will be as obstinate if Obama wins a second term. They will be wanting to paint themselves in a better light for 2016. So Obama will be just as much of a pushover but the Republicans in Congress will likely be more cooperative.

    I have no doubt that Romney would be willing to work with both sides. And I doubt, hope, the Democrats would be willing to throw the nation under the bus in the same way the Republicans did just to make the President look bad. Another reason I think Romney would be cooperative is that I don't actually think he stands for anything. He can easily be swayed as long as it can be shown that it would be in his best interest.

    Which Political Candidate Do You Think Would Be Most Bi-Partisan?

    Romney

    He'd have the potential for a second term so would have more to lose by being clearly stonewalling and partisan

    Obama doesn't have another term to worry about if he's elected, and so has no strong political reason to strive for bipartisanship

    I would think a lame duck President who wanted to leave a legacy of having accomplished some legislating would be more inclined to work across the isle than not. It will take some compromising by both parties to reach some solutions for the coming fiscal cliff and automatic cuts.
