What changes from the previous term do you expect? What improvements to you hope will be made?

You never know. The presidency has accumulated so much power it is moving past the constitutional boundaries of his office just as the government as a whole has. Sooner or later, an authoritarian will take the white house. Maybe one already has.
The mainstream media didn't report, wonder why?
OBAMA BANNED THIS VIDEO
This administration has shown a remarkable willingness to make new policy whether or not it has the approval of the congress, and the courts are too slow to stop it.
Sapper, I agree. Presidents have this built-up persona of power and authority that amounts to nothing. In a sense, they are trapped by their own office. I'd even argue that the Pentagon is what railroads them into combat deployment decisions.
Don't worry I'll do better when I conquer the world and send the radical politicians to mars. They can be live human test subjects.
The President held a one sided press conference today,11,09,2012.That's a press conference where he talks, don't take questions and leaves the podium. Just another photo op.
What he said was no different than in the past and compromise
Sort of my point. I expect more of the same and maybe a little worse. particulary the regulatory environment.
This time he no one else to blame but himself.
Yes, let's just throw out all those inconvenient restraints on power and declare the president free to do whatever he likes. But wait a moment ... Sooner or later, W. or someone like him will be back in office. Oh, well, you get what you give, eh?
Come on, be nice we spoke to them after 8 years of Bush! I am laughing though to be thought of as a running Amok Radical at 60 is kind of flattering.
I didn't know you were a member of the administration's inner circle, Justsilvie. I'll try to remember that.
Attikos, I agree with you. Personally, I didn't care for either candidate, but the anti-Obama people in Texas are venomous. It's not even subliminal racism anymore, but outright vulgar behavior. It's not just on the internet, but everywhere.
