Most people involved with politics say this month’s election results show President Barack Obama will have to move toward Republican positions if he wants to avoid being a one-term president. Indeed, jimmy,carter,barack,obamaObama already has co-opted one GOP idea – a pay freeze for federal government employees. But former President Jimmy Carter sees it differently, Politico reports.

"In the next two years, President Obama will be much more independent in fighting hard to prevail and not trying to reach out,” Carter said in an interview with CBS News. "I think he'll be a much more tough proponent of what he stands for in the future, giving up on Republicans’ support and taking his case to the American public."

The former president lashed out at the GOP. "Republicans so far have been totally irresponsible," he says. "Now that they've taken control of the House of Representatives, they'll be responsible for a major element of the U.S. government."
