Americans don't want that.
Romney had a history of being able to work with his opponents. Obama flat out said he COULDN'T.
People don't give a shit about that stuff. They care more about Obama-phones and "cheap" healthcare.
I hate the fact that you're right. The majority of voters, I think, don't look too deeply into what each candidate is actually promising and what they can accomplish.
Honestly, I liked Obama when he first ran, but after seeing what he's done (or, rather, failed to do) it's obvious we need someone who will do more than give us free stuff.
"Vote for me so you can get free healthcare and cell phones"
"Vote for me so we can fix the economy"
I'm not pretending I'm some sort of political genius, but I would rather have the deficit reduced than free crap.
