    Forget Republicans!! President Obama needs to do as many executive orders as possible. They have more than proven that they don't wanna help, So the president has to take the lead and make things happen and let the Chips fall where they may. The people will ultimately remember that the President tried desperately to do as much good as possible.

    Pres. Obama should do sum direct focus on the inner city with growth and redevelopment. cities are in dire needs of jobs, not just summer youth jobs but jobs for everyone. These people need to see a strong powerful hand reaching into communities and providing concrete ways to uplift themselves. Crime, hopelessness will die down when these basic needs are strongly addressed.
    Also laws need to be made to lighten the burden of those who get felonies and bad records, a way to redeem themselves and become productive citizens again. Maybe after sum years bad records can be erased after person has paid their dept to society.... We are only as strong as the weakest amongst us......
