President Barack Obama’s efforts toward balancing the budget were thwarted at every turn by the Republican senators and the House majority with the professed goal of assuring that Obama does not succeed in getting a second term.

Maybe when Obama is re-elected and cannot aspire to a third term the Republicans in the Senate and House will stop thinking about their own political futures and cooperate on passing legislation that will both balance the budget and improve the economy. Then they will not need to worry about Obama’s successes.
