"There's a 61 percentage point gap between Democratic and Republican opinions of Obama's job performance. Democrats are extraordinarily sweet on Obama, while Republicans are especially sour. The gaps were smaller at comparable periods for both Republican George W. Bush and Democrat Bill Clinton. Obama won 53 percent of the popular vote with a coalition that spanned the ideological spectrum. But nearly half the country didn't vote for him and many still don't support him. Obama's job approval rating is in the low 60s. But Bush was at 62 percent at this point in 2001 and left office in the high 20s."
Do you feel that non-government Republicans are holding onto a party-line grudge? And if so, do you think the party can eventually overcome this grudge before the term is over in order to unite the country? If not, why?

Op, there is this thing called Fundamental Difference? Obama has some far left views and policy proposals. Do you expect Republicans to cowher down and let it happen? Seriously? Are you trying to belittle the fundamental difference of a liberal vs. conservative? And wrap it in a pretty little leftist bow and poo-poo it as stubbornness? LOL. How elementary.

Honesty? Dunno, don't care. I see this as no different as the "grudge" Dems had against Republicans during Bush's time in office. And Obama is fanning the flames of THAT grudge still. Why not just let it go? Besides, why can liberals disagree with conservatives and that's all fine and dandy, but conservatives are said to be acting petty and dividing the country when they don't agree with liberal policies. I don't get that, it makes no sense to me.
