Obama plays footsy on edge of the Fiscal Cliff

cliffWith the end of the election season many people were hopeful that the politicking would cease, and the process of governing would begin.

romney-obama-presidential-pollsIn 2008, America, frustrated with a seemingly endless war in Iraq, military action in Afghanistan and Pakistan, and a faltering economy, turned to the most unlikely of presidential candidates, one with little government experience and a much different view of American’s role in the world.
