One and done: To be a great president, Obama should not seek reelection in 2012

President Obama must decide now how he wants to govern in the two years leading up to the 2012 presidential election.
In recent days, he has offered differing visions of how he might approach the country's problems. At one point, he spoke of the need for "mid-course corrections." At another, he expressed a desire to take ideas from both sides of the aisle. And before this month's midterm elections, he said he believed that the next two years would involve "hand-to-hand combat" with Republicans, whom he also referred to as "enemies."
It is clear that the president is still trying to reach a resolution in his own mind as to what he should do and how he should do it. .
I believe Obama could be a one termer and actually do some good for the country. If he will work with the Republicans to keep them honest and like wise with Obama of them. If they put the will of the people above the will of their power. If they sit down and address our problems without pointing fingers and name calling. If they could finally be non partisan and do what they were sent up their to do. Stewardship of the people whom put them there.
But sadly I think both sides are going to make it worse. Republicans seeking to find something on Obama admin will only cost money for nothing. They will beat the chests and scream lower taxes but really get nothing done.
Obama and dems will grid lock everything in the senate. Be even more nastier. Start screaming racism everytime Obama gets battered by a white rep. Get the minority community in a uproar by telling them the evil white republicans are going to cut their social programs.
Come 2012, the country will be in no better shape than it is today. Hopefully not worse.
