In his speech to a joint session of Congress on September 8, President Obama reminded both parties, "The election is 14 months away." His message was that it is totally selfish for both parties to battle each other instead of joining together to fix the economy. Predictably the message fell on deaf Republican ears. There is no doubt that the Republicans will stop at nothing in their quest to remove Obama from the presidency. Is this the Republican version of “Arab Spring”? If so, it looks like we have 14 months of chaos ahead of us. Hopefully there will not be an “Arab Spring” American style in our future.
