By the time it was made, the independents and Republicans who ended up voting for him had already fully agreed with him about the parasitic nature of the 47% (indeed, it's been a conservative talking point for years at this point) and the Democrats and independents who disliked that remark had already made up their minds that Mr. Venture Capitalist Romney simply wasn't their man.
    i think it's obvious enough : he was already fighting a Gordon Gecko image, and that comment cemented it. he ended up coming off as an elitist plutocrat at a time when a significant portion of that 47 percent were in that 47 percent because of decisions made by executives just like Romney. it was just too steep of a hill to climb. he needed crossover votes, and he didn't get them. it wasn't solely because of that comment, but it was still a pretty big deal.

    As long as the Republicans maintain control of the house which looks pretty safe at this point in time. I don't foresee any piece of a major legislation agenda being passed. I think all this president can do from now on out is just keep what ever portion of his agenda he had passed in place. Nothing new.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    He can still appoint judges, maybe even a supreme or two and that as Biden would say is a big f**** deal.

    True, especially due to Reid's nuclear option. But as far as legislation is concerned, he is through having burnt his bridges many, many moons ago. It will be all he can do to keep the ACA afloat. If the Republicans are wise, they will just keep quiet and let the ACA speak for itself. But some how, the Republicans will figure out a way to put their foot in their mouth, much like Aiken and Mourdock did last year and those two probably cost the GOP at least 4 senate seats and maybe as many as six. Romney's inept campaign didn't help either.

    He is bad a President. He may not be the worst ever but I would rank him down near the bottom.

    He certainly got dealt a difficult hand.

    And in some cases he acted correctly.

    But I think overall one cannot say he's been a very effective president.

    you mean those establishment type centrist policies like the ACA?

    That the black president ought to be judged by what he says and does, rather than his skin color, just like the 42 white presidents who came before him.
    Yes, it's a shame you can't do that

    He certainly inherited a mess, but he came into office with a pretty strong political mandate that he managed to squander.
